The movie takes place in World War I, and it tells the story of a boy and his horse, and their undying friendship. Albert, the boy, is very attached to his horse Joey, and when Joey was forced to serve in the war, Albert does what he can to be able to connect with Joey again.
And while we know that Steven Spielberg is most popular for making sci-fi alien movies (even the Midwest is now influenced by his Cowboys and Aliens), he is still a decent director for any movie that you can think of, so it is expected that this movie will be as good as Spielberg.
It has been heard and news have been circling around that Spielberg have been dreaming of making a movie that is about the first World War, so this movie is the perfect opportunity to fulfill what he has been wanting for the longest time. Also, this film will be a good basis for kids’ homework since most movies about war more often than not always center on World War II, and Nazis are all we know.
With almost everything being adapted from another story, this film is just the same, with it being based by Michael Morpurgo’s novel of the same title. Since this is a pretty good story, and the director is an icon of Hollywood movies, then it can rake in a lot of Oscar nominations. Plus, it is definite that this will score high in the box office.
