Of the first trailer, we said that Steven Spielberg's PG-13 film version of the heart-tugging Word War I drama War Horse "looks like an Academy-friendly no-brainer." We called it a "four-hankie."

Of the first trailer, we said that Steven Spielberg's PG-13 film version of the heart-tugging Word War I drama War Horse "looks like an Academy-friendly no-brainer." We called it a "four-hankie."

It still is. The film adapted by Lee Hall and Richard Curtis from Michael Morpurgo’s novel (the subsequent stage play is now wowing theatergoers on Broadway), boasts epic scope but plays out on a human scale. And John Williams' score works overtime. War Horse will wish us all a Merry Christmas on December 25.
