I'm a big fan of Steven Spielberg, and I imagine many of you are as well. Spielberg has been hard at work directing his next live-action film War Horse based on a novel by Michael Morpurgo. The movie stars stars David Thewlis, Emily Watson, Stephen Graham, Tom Hiddleston and others.
I'm currently reading the book that this movie is based on and so far it's wonderful, and it's going to make for a great movie. Spielberg is a master artist at making films based around war, and this is a perfect project for him to tackle.
We now have an official plot synopsis for the film to share with you. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
From director Steven Spielberg comes “War Horse,” an epic adventure for audiences of all ages. Set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War, “War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets—British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter—before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.
The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse—an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. “War Horse” is one of the great stories of friendship and war—a successful book, it was turned into a hugely successful international theatrical hit that is arriving on Broadway next year. It now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.
