Saoirse Ronan with the cast of ‘The Way Back’

Saoirse Ronan (in pale dress) stands arm-in-arm with (from left) Ed Harris, Colin Farrell, Peter Weir, Jim Sturgess, and Sebastian Urzendowsky on December 13, 2010. This was at the Paris premiere of the film The Way Back, held at Cinematheque Francaise. Saoirse Ronan was born in 1994, so she turned 16 the year this photo was taken. The Way Back was a World War II survival drama, based on a possibly-true story about prisoners who escaped a Soviet gulag by walking 4000 miles across Asia to freedom.
