The film, based on the book of the same name, tells the true story of Scottish soldier Eric Lomax who was held captive and made to work on the Burma railway by the Japanese during the Second World War.

Lomax, played by Firth, tracks down one of his captors after the war and forgives him.

Kidman, who plays Lomax's wife, said she was looking forward to staying in Edinburgh during the filming. She said: "One of the great things about being an actor is that you get to live in a city for a certain amount of time.

"You really get to know it, and you don't feel like you're just visiting, so that's what I look forward to doing. I hope there's some good restaurants, I'll be out and about."
