National Theatre Live - War Horse (Recorded Live) (U)

Recorded Live. War/Drama. Based on the ​beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, adapted by Nick Stafford.

The critically acclaimed and international smash-hit play War Horse is coming to cinemas as a 'recorded live' screening. At the outbreak of World War One, Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

Starring Sion Young, Josie Walker, Stephen North, Alex Avery, Alistair Brammer

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Although the storyline is not that strong (it is based a children's book), the puppetry is completely amazing. Its hard not to believe in the horses. And so wonderful to feel like you are at the theatre in these difficult times
