Variety shares the film is a contemporary adaptation of Anna Sewell’s classic 19th century novel “Black Beauty” as Oscar winner Kate Winslet (“The Reader”) stars as the voice of Black Beauty. The film features Mackenzie Foy (“Interstellar”) as Jo Green, alongside Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones”) and Claire Forlani (“Meet Joe Black”).
The story turns on the classic premise in which Black Beauty, born free in the American west, is captured and taken away from family. Her story intertwines with that of 17-year-old Jo, who’s similarly grieving the loss of her parents, ultimately forging a strong bond between the pair.
