PG-13 | | Drama, War
Young Albert enlists to serve in World War I after his beloved horse is sold to the cavalry. Albert's hopeful journey takes him out of England and to the front lines as the war rages on.
The film is based on both a children's novel of the same name set during World War I, by Michael Morpurgo, first published in the United Kingdom in 1982, and the 2007 stage adaptation, also of the same name.
Some days are best forgotten. Today ain't one of them.
When the horse is auctioned, the landlord says 'there's a war coming'. This is several months before the start of the war. At that time, few expected a war, or that Britain would be involved in a Continental war if it happened.
