Saw this yesterday because I wanted to see the play before the film.

Absoluetly wonderful. Very powerful and moving and I defy anyone to watch this without completely believing in the horses

My son watched War Horse on a return flight from the US last week and he said pretty much what you've written above. He thought it excellent, too.

I can't help thinking of my maternal grandfather who served as a Lance Bombadier with the Royal Garrison Artillery in the Somme. He praised the mules that hauled the giant gun carriages through thick mud but talked little of his other experiences.

I saw it last month. Couldn't agree more, Number Six. Wonderful theatre.

We're going to see it again oldraver. They're broadcasting it direct to cinemas. We're also going to see the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time though I think this is a repeat. We've already seen Helen Mirren in The Audience. Excellent way to see West End Shows at a fraction of the cost without the palaver of going to London

What a great idea ! I didn't know of such a thing.

By "repeat", do you mean it would have been filmed before the unfortunate accident? I think it must be, as it's resuming at The Gielgud on 24th June.

Must check and see if any of my local cinemas are showing West End productions. I don't think you can beat the real thing, but hey, as you say, beats all the palaver...and the wonga!
