“MAGNIFICENT! JOYOUS! UPLIFTING!”
— ROGER EBERT, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

From legendary director Steven Spielberg comes the epic adventure War Horse, a tale of incredible loyalty, hope and tenacity. Based on the Tony award-winning* Broadway play, and set against the sweeping canvas of World War I, this deeply heartfelt story begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and his young trainer Albert. When they’re forced apart by war, we follow Joey’s extraordinary journey as he changes and inspires the lives of everyone he meets. Filled with spectacularly rich visuals War Horse is a “Genuine Movie Masterpiece” (Rex Reed, The New York Observer) and one of the most powerful and moving stories of friendship ever told.
Best Play, 2011
I am not really a big fan of horse movies; however, the touching tale in War Horse made this movie one of my favorite movies. It has amazing film techniques, acting, story, and soundtrack. This film is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of war violence. Several famous British actors are in this film including: Tom Hiddleston (Loki in Thor and Avengers), Peter Mullan, Emily Watson (voice of Victoria Everglot in Corpse Bride), David Thewlis (Remus Lupin in several Harry Potter films), and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes in the BBC TV series Sherlock, and William Pitt in Amazing Grace). I hope that you get the chance to see this movie, and enjoy it as much as I did.
