  • Overview
  • Details
Anna Sewell's timeless Victorian novel comes touchingly to life in this episodic big-screen adaptation. Lyrically recounted from the handsome stallion's perspective, the film traces his fortunes -- from his happy beginnings on a sprawling, verdant country manor to working-class London's sooty, teeming streets. As he passes from owner to owner during a two-decade span, the ever-faithful steed encounters the best and worst of the human spirit.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this handsome adaptation of Anna Sewell's 1877 children's classic is emotionally harrowing, but ultimately heartwarming. Even the most stoic of kids will be moved. Because of the film's intense and sad scenes, parents are advised to use caution when allowing younger and more sensitive children to watch this film. Older children will love it for its action and a noble creature with which to empathize. Some teens may be a bit old for a horse story, but the movie is engaging, especially for teens interested in animal rights.

Sexual Content

Violence

the mistreatment that Beauty and Ginger suffer proves most frightening. Ginger's death (we don't see her die, she is just carted away) will probably inspire tears.

Language

Social Behavior

Black Beauty is a magnificent horse at the mercy of human owners who alternately abuse and adore him. This may spark important thinking -- and discussion -- about human rights.
