A Bridge on the River Kwai

Starring William Holden and Alec Guiness

Directed by David Lean

Release Date: October 2, 1957

A fantastic picture about men who live by a code of honor, risking their lives and the lives of their men to preserve their dignity. Alec Guiness and William Holden are fantastic in this movie, playing to their strength with Guiness perfectly capturing the English Colonel who strives to uphold rule and order even under captivity while William Holden's Major Sheers cannot understand the Colonel and merely wants to survive his captivity. A great picture that fans of great dramas and WWII pictures will enjoy.

Rating: * * * * 1/2 of 5
