Steven Spielberg has crafted a very versatile career. His newest picture, “War Horse”, which is based on the children’s novel and stage production of the same name, is set before and during World War I. Unlike other Steven Spielberg war movies, this one includes an equine protagonist, Joey. The human protagonist is Albert, who enlists in the service after Joey is sold to the cavalry during World War I. Joey endures some brutal hardships, as does Albert, but their friendship remains unfailing.
