Synopsis: When he’s sold to the army after the outbreak of The Great War, Joey the horse encounters a variety of people across Britain and France, experiencing the battle from both sides.

It isn’t often that one sees a film in which the protagonist is a non-human, particularly if said non-human hasn’t been anthropomorphosized and given an amusing hat of some kind. But that’s exactly what Steven Spielberg has dared to do in War Horse, his adaptation of the Michael Murpurgo novel.

P.S. I don't follow these things: Is there another Twilight about to come out or something?
