Best war movie mistakes of 1997
Plot hole: Jennifer Ehle gets a note from her husband, who is a prisoner in the men's camp a few miles away, saying, 'We're escaping on Sunday night. See you in Sydney.' So, even though this note is going to be passed via several people, any of whom might betray him, not only does he explicitly say he plans to escape, but even when he's going to do it. No wonder he gets caught.
