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).
