After settling his differences with a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp commander, a British colonel co-operates to oversee his men’s construction of a railway bridge for their captors while oblivious to a plan by the allies to destroy it. Winner of seven Academy Awards in 1958, including Best Picture, Best Director for the legendary British filmmaker David Lean, and Best Actor for Alec Guinness, ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’ is a modern masterpiece and grand movie-making at its very best.
