War Horse

Went to see the film War Horse last night. Judging by the silence of the audience it was very entertaining. I thought it was well acted and cast.
One criticism is that the start was rather like a chocolate box picture. It was like an Americans idea of what the rural English village and farm looked like in 1914. The houses were too smart, the people were two clean. Then the ending with the sun setting over the ridge and Joey coming back to the farm. A bit like a western.
Maybe it was because I saw the stage play with the puppets and missed these. If you can see the stage version I would urge you to go.
Overall an entertaining evening.
