PG-13 | | Drama, History, 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.
Director Steven Spielberg stated that the only digital effects used in the movie were three shots that lasted three seconds, and it was done to ensure the safety of the horse involved. Spielberg was quoted as saying, "That's the thing I'm most proud of. Everything you see on screen really happened."
There are big days and there are small days, which will it be?
When the Germans begin their march, Gunther ties Albert's flag to the left of Michael's bag. Later when they are doing the march down the road, the flag is now tied to the right.
