And I wasn’t aware beforehand who was on the cast list. So we’re watching it and we get to the part where the soldier buys Joey and puts him next to that other soldier’s horse, and the other soldier walks up and OHMYGOD IS THAT BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH?
I spent a full ten minutes watching JUST that character to be sure. And when the credits rolled, I made my mom watch them with me to see if I was right. It’s his face. He has this face and this smile that are unique to him, and I knew who it was the moment he walked on screen. I was super unreasonably excited after that. So yeah.
TLDR; Watched the movie War Horse, Benedict Cumberbatch steps on screen and I can focus on absolutely NOTHING ELSE.
