Synopsis

The inspiring story of a horse that survived the horrors of the trenches in World War One gallops onto the big screen after previous successful run-outs as a novel and play. Steven Spielberg brings his customary skill as a master storyteller to bear on the equine fable with newcomer Jeremy Irvine as the Devonshire farmer's son who tames the beast and follows him to the hell-on-earth that was the Somme. Ravishing visuals - particularly a brutal infantry assault across No Man's Land - plus a solid script ensure that this is an adventure which is first past the post.
