War Horse (2011)

Set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during World War I and directed by Steven Spielberg, the film 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 Joey 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.

The film was slightly moving, but somewhat boring. Tom Hiddleston gave a convincing performance as Captain James Nicholls.

Rating: 2.5/5.
