I also added a 6 minute interview with Spielberg where he talks about the film, the cast and the challenges of making a movie about where the horse is the lead.
I wonder Joey the Horse didn’t get a SAG nomination this morning? He deserved it!
The film stars newcomer Jeremy Irvine (this is his first big acting role), Emily Watson, David Thewlis and Tom Hiddleston.
The movie follows a young man named Albert (Irvine) who befriends a horse named Joey. When they are forcefully parted, the horse moves through the First World War, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets — British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter.
The film opens on December 25th.
