Anna Sewells novel Black Beauty has been one of the worlds 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 Londons cobblestoned streets. Written and directed by Caroline Thompson (1993s The Secret Garden), this is the most faithful of the books several filmings. Youll 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 Barker (David Thewlis).
