Nominated for six Academy Awards and winner of three BAFTAs, Steven Spielberg's tale of a youngster's harrowing and remarkable experiences in World War II-era China, stars: Christian Bale, John Malkovich, Miranda Richardson, Nigel Havers, Joe Pantoliano, Ben Stiller and Leslie Phillips.

Empire of the Sun is an inspiring, action-packed epic of a small boy in a great war. That boy is Jim Graham, a young Briton whose unconquerable spirit soars high and free above the harsh confines of a Japanese internment camp during World War II.

Through his eyes we see the fascination and horror of war. And we see a child's hold onto childhood weaken as his struggle to survive grows fiercer. Based on J.G.Ballard's memorable best seller, this first major Hollywood studio production ever to shoot in the People 's Republic of China earned 1987 National Board of Review awards for Best Picture and Director, as well as a special citation for Outstanding Juvenile Performance for Christian Bale as Jim.

So glad this is finally on BR, it was one of the first films I searched for when I got BR five years ago and couldn't believe it hadn't been made available.
It's almost a crime it's taken this long!
Looking forward to it turning up, hope it's a good transfer!
