War Horse USA 2011 – 146min.
An adolescent follows his horse into Word War One when it is commissioned into the British cavalry.
Albert is an English boy who loves nothing better than riding his favorite horse, Joey. But as war breaks out in Europe, Joey is sold to the British cavalry and sent off to the French trenches. At first accepting of his horse's fate, Albert soon decides to follow Joey off to war to reconnect their bond and save him from death.
Based on the children's novel of the same name, War Horse uses the bond between an adolescent and his courageous equine friend to tell the story of the War to End All Wars. Spielberg's old-fashioned cinematic eye is on hand for some very majestic visuals which, together with the omnipresent score by John Williams, are sure to lay on the emotional experience as thickly as possible.
