This film told the story of the adventures of the "star", Joey, as he is dealt quite a hand during WW I. Superbly told; with sweeping vistas and Spielberg's magic touch, this movie slowly draws you in until every ounce of emotion is brought forth and reaches a satisfying, yet sublime, conclusion! Worth every moment. A true "classic". Don't miss this movie. Perfect. Acting is good; storyline is excellent. Not a dull minute. Battle scenes and difficult situations are to the point without being graphic. No disgusting scenes or language. The horse truely is the main character, and the viewer is bonded to him, and feels his emotion. A must see.
