Spielberg has done it again - absolutely amazing film but take loads of tissues as I sobbed for quite alot of it :roll: :roll:
So entranced with it forgot to look out for my DS who was an extra in the war scenes ](*,)

We saw this yesterday and like you i sobbed through most of it. Didn't help that Albert reminded me of an older version of my ds!! A beautiful film and for the most of it-true to the book. What an experience for your ds to be part of this. I loved it :D

Such an AMAZING film!!! Had tears rolling down my face in some parts. Was lovely to see shots of Dartmoor that I recognised :) & I can see why I didn't get chosen as an extra, seeing as pretty much all the extras were males & the few women that were extras were older, makes me feel better :lol: :lol: :lol:

I want to see it, not sure if my emotions can take it? - 1st ww really does affect me, the carnage, the tragedy.......
If you really want some amazing background to the war and have never been, visit the Imperial War Museum, I guarantee you will will have a day full of mixed emotion but leave so much more knowledgeable

I am very emotional when it comes to watching films and yes i cried during this but more because it was touching rather than traumatic. I would go and see it on a big screen. My ds is going to see War Horse in London with his school. They are also having a workshop with the puppeteers, staying overnight and visiting the War museum the following day. Sounds a great trip. Only wish i could go :D

I have seen and LOVED the stage version. As a result I am not sure whether or not I want to see the film ... don't want to spoil my memories :?

Snap! On the other hand I'm on a bit of a Benedict Cumberbatch watching spree atm, after Sherlock :oops: and want to see him in this. Have also ordered the DVD of Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy, which he is supposed to be good in \:D/

I was a bit worried about seeing it as I thought it would be really schmaltzy, and had read the book (one of my favourites ever) and seen the stage production, but thought it was a really good film in many ways. I'm not so much a Cumberband fan as a Hiddleston fan! Also v interested to discover Jeremy Irvine had had 2 years of auditions without getting a part at all before getting cast in this film!
