Equitainment's Comments

This one is an absolute ripper, and I've even made the scary move of recommending it for the fellas as well. I've spoken to several rough and tough blokes who VERY quietly admitted that they loved it, and got quite choked up as well. Naturally I won't mention any names to protect, some very manly reputations :-)

This version of the many Black Beauty's made throughout the years, faithfully follows the book and is most sympathetically written, acted and directed. It's great for most ages but may be a bit too deep for the littlies. I've tried to get my god-daughters interested a couple of times (aged 2 and 4) but they get distracted after about 10 minutes.

BE WARNED ..... don't start the movie without a full box of tissues!

Product Overview

Anna Sewell's novel Black Beauty has been one of the world's most beloved animal stories since its 1877 publication.

The story is told by its hero, a remarkable black horse with a white "star" on his forehead, whose joyous and heartbreaking life takes him from idyllic country life to London's cobble stoned streets.

Written and directed by Caroline Thompson (1993's The Secret Garden), this is the most faithful of the book's several filmings. You'll cherish rebellious filly Ginger, mischievous pony Merrylegs and gallant Beauty, whose generous heart guides him under caretakers both kindly and harsh, from Farmer Grey (Sean Bean) and young groom Joe Green (Andrew Knott) to sweet-natured cabbie Jerry Barket (David Thewlis).
