    This link is actually from October 2012 when Eric Lomax died. His story is a striking example of just how harmful it can be to hold grudges, even when they appear to be justified:

    The link below is to British actor Colin Firth's interview about making the movie based on Eric Lomax's life and how he was influenced by actually meeting the man. Firth plays the older Lomax in the film, which hasn't been released in the United States yet, but came out in Canada at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. I checked IMDb, which gives a list of releases, one of them being in Australia on December 26th. No sign of release here yet, which is odd. It can only be saved on Netflix, which has no idea when it'll become available here.
