About the Movie
War Horse is a story of incredible friendship, loyalty, courage, hope and tenacity. Based on an award winning play, and set against the sweeping canvas of World War I, this deeply heartfelt tale begins with the remarkable friendship between a feisty colt named Joey and his young trainer Albert. When they’re forced apart by war, the film follows Joey’s extraordinary journey as he changes and inspires the lives of everyone he meets. No matter where they go or what they experience, both boy and horse keep forging ahead, driven by devotion and the hope of returning home.
