''The Way Back'' won and was nominated for several awards. It was nominated for an Oscar in Best Achievement in Makeup.
This is such a movie that made me look at the screen until the movie ended. It is very, very much touching film that made me think repeatedly, ''Will they (the characters) be able to survive?" The music, acting, story, everythingis wonderful.
4 out of 5.
