War Horse is gaining momentum for scoring a nomination for Best Picture come Oscar time. With the announcement today of the Producers Guild Award nominees and War Horse’s inclusion, the Steven Spielberg-directed film is ever close to that elusive Best Picture nod.
An inspiring tale of a man, Albert, and his horse, Joey, War Horse takes place during World War I and explores what happens when the horses of England are called into duty to fight the Germans on the front lines of continental Europe. Jeremy Irvine is Albert, who when he is old enough joins the fight, largely to find his horse Joey.
As it is such a stirring tale, there are plenty of memorable lines, and here are just a few of the best War Horse quotes.
