      Movie Info

      Like the Anna Sewell novel that inspired it, this film adaptation is told from the perspective of a majestic stallion named Black Beauty (Alan Cumming). As a colt, Black Beauty has a relaxed life in the English countryside, owned by the kindly farmer Grey (Sean Bean). However, later in life, he is forced to work as a taxi horse in London. As an aged horse, Black Beauty finds himself in the care of loving owners again, but only after a series of thrilling hardships and triumphs.

      • Dec 04, 2011

        Much like the animated film Watership Down, this movie has a lot of trouble deciding a targeted audience. It's far too dark for children yet has a kiddie plot. Both films are based on novels, but it's one thing to read about more mature things and quite another to see it.

        really good acting but not a good plot.

        Beautiful movie, beautiful music, beautiful scenes, beautiful horses! This movie let us people see the life of a horse through his eyes. Now you can better understand what's like to be a horse, because this horse can 'talk' and has emotions like we have. But that doesn't make it less sad. Unfortunately, even today, lots of horses have a life like Black Beauty. Even much worse...
