A YOUNG man loses his best friend when he is taken to war, but can even the battlefields of France keep them apart in War Horse, released tomorrow (Friday) at the Vue in Hamilton.

War Horse is the hotly anticipated adaptation of the hit West End and Broadway play by Steven Spielberg.

A Devon lad, Albert (Jeremy Irvine), loves his horse Joey. But when the First World War breaks out, Joey is shipped to the front line - first on the side of the British, then on the German side and then fending for himself in no-man’s land.

However, the bond between man and horse is too strong for details like Albert’s age to stand between them and the boy sets out on a treacherous journey to find his friend.

Every week the Times & Speaker has three pairs of tickets to The Vue in Hamilton to give away to see any film of your choice.

See January 12 edition for entry details.
