Video & Photos: Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse”

Posted by Jeffrey Bloomer on 12.8.2011

Film Society of Lincoln Center hosted two special advance screenings this week of War Horse, Steven Spielberg’s new adaptation of the Tony Award-winning play and novel. Held just down the street from the play’s Lincoln Center home since last spring, the screenings also featured Q&As with stars from the film ahead of its opening on Christmas Day.

At one Q&A, presented by Moms and the City, two-time Oscar nominee Emily Watson discussed her part as the film’s sturdy matriarch and her off-screen role as the mother of two young children. At a later screening for Chairman’s Circle members, Watson joined co-star Toby Kebbell (Prince of Persia) to discuss working on the movie and what it’s like to get a call from Steven Spielberg. Watson said she was most struck by how Spielberg has a “complete compulsion to tell stories.”

Check out video from both Q&As below as well as exclusive photos from the Chairman's Circle event:
