Throwback Trailer Thursday #51

The trailer for this week’s throwback Thursday is for Steven Spielberg’s 1987 coming of age drama, “Empire of the Sun”, starring a young Christian Bale as an aristocratic English boy named Jamie who is captured by the Japanese during World War II and forced into prison camp after their invasion of Shanghai. Based on J.G. Ballard’s autobiographical novel of the same name, Empire of the Sun shows how Jamie’s retaining of dignity and youth provides a beacon of hope for the others held captive alongside him.
