My son loves War Horse movie. He has seen it before in the theater, and kept talking about it. He said it is the best movie he has seen for the year, even better than The Hunger Games, which he has me buying the books for him to read!
Last weekend, after long exhausting days of soccer, (I put on more than 300 miles on two days), JoJo rented this movie from his XBox points for me to see. He also made sure that I would not multi-tasks, and just watched War Horse by sitting on my lap (yes, he did!) Well, it didn't last long as my legs became numb by his weight.
I promised to pay full attention to the movie if he got off my lap, and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Beautiful photography, fantastic story, and the faithful relationship between a boy and his horse were inspiring!
The horse was sold to be used in the war, and went through many horrendous experiences, but as luck had it, he always seemed to find someone who loved and helped him out!
If you haven't seen this movie, I strongly recommend it! It is a fabulous one for the entire family, and don't forget the Kleenex! Who knows, we might learn to accept and love one another despite our differences.
