DreamWorks Pictures’ War Horse
, directed by Steven Spielberg, is an epic tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War.
War Horse begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the story follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of those he meets, British, German and French alike, civilian and cavalry, before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.
Continuing their long-standing collaboration, Steven Spielberg chose the celebrated composer John Williams to create the score for War Horse
. “The dramatic countryside of Dartmoor has inspired John Williams to compose a score of such beauty...it affected me deeply, as have so many of John’s scores during our nearly 40-year collaboration. I feel that John has made a special gift to me of this music” Steven Spielberg on John Williams’ score for War Horse.
