one more new movie based on a book


When I was searching for new movies coming soon which were based on books, I missed one - War Horse. This movie comes out on Christmas Day and is based on the book  War Horse by Michael Morpurgo . This is the story of a horse who gets sold to the army and sent into World War 1. The book is for kids (the publisher says for ages 8 and up), but the movie is rated PG-13 because of all the war scenes. Reviewers who have seen the movie already at special pre-screenings say it is "a captivating story", " wholesome cinematic storytelling", and "gripping, thrilling, and very emotional". hmmm, maybe take a Kleenex when you go see it.
