Thats high praise right there. The Story: Set against the backdrop of World War I, the movie follows Joey, a young thoroughbred who is sold to the Narracott family to plow land. He is trained by the similarly young Albert (Jeremy Irvine), who he forms a strong bond with. When the War starts, Joey is sold to the British Calvary, which takes him onto a journey that sees him serving on both sides of the war.http://movies.insing.com/feature/war-horse-the-little-horse-that-could/id-85233f00 Page 1 of 4

Steven Spielberg in the holiday season. And without a doubt, “War Horse” is the better one out of the two.

The film, in truth is really more about the horse, Joey, and the connections he makes with the people he meets through his Featured Series journey. These small encounters really bring out the humanity in the supporting characters and make for several heart-warming moments in the film. Additionally, to be able to coax you to feel emotions for a horse... its just really quite something to behold. inSing.com movie... inSing.com movie... Movie Review:... The Dictator: A...

Breath-taking shots of the European landscapes and a powerful score by John Williams make for an experience that honestly, we didnt want to end. To sum it all up, “War Horse” is a throwback to how films use to be made. An emotive and powerful script with universal themes that will radiate with anyone, this film is one for the entire family. Combined with stellar performances from a huge cast, wonderful cinematography and music score, this film is arguably Spielbergs finest hour since “Schindlers List” or “Saving Private Ryan”.http://movies.insing.com/feature/war-horse-the-little-horse-that-could/id-85233f00 Page 2 of 4
