What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know Black Beauty is a handsome adaptation of Anna Sewell's 1877 children's classic that's emotionally harrowing, but ultimately heartwarming. Even the most stoic of kids will be moved. Because of the film's intense and sad scenes, parents are advised to use caution when allowing younger and more sensitive children to watch this film. Older children will love it for its action and a noble creature with which to empathize. Some teens may be a bit old for a horse story, but the movie is engaging, especially for teens interested in animal rights.
