War horse [videorecording]

     Review by:  Lisa

Title:  War horse [videorecording]

Starring:  Emily Watson, David Thewlis, Peter Mullan, Niels Arestrup, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irvine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Kebbell

Collection: Movies

This 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.

Nominated for the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture of the Year and winner of the American Film Institute Movie of the Year, War Horse is extraordinarily beautiful in story and imagery.  From Saving Private Ryan to Schindler’s List to Band of Brothers,  Steven Spielberg continues to be a master of making war movies with heart.  War Horse adds to this legacy by telling the story of World War I from multiple sides of the conflict, following Joey as he journeys through it all.  Touching, poignant, and stunning.  Highly recommended.
