Based on a novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse traces the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, played by Jeremy Irvine. After taming and training Joey, Albert watches helplessly as the horse is sold to the British cavalry. The film follows the horse's extraordinary journey from the Devon countryside to the battlefields of France during World War I. Along the way, Joey changes and inspires the lives of British and German soldiers and a French farmer and his granddaughter. The story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man's Land.
The cinematography is outstanding and definitely Oscar-worthy. Great family entertainment with many tear-jerking moments.
