In this episode, we review two incredibly different movies. First, Rachel presents the 1994 Warner Brothers film, Black Beauty.
From Wikipedia:
Black Beauty is a 1994 American film adaptation of Anna Sewell's novel by the same name directed by Caroline Thompson in her directorial debut. The film stars Andrew Knott, Sean Bean and David Thewlis. The film is also treated as an autobiography of the horse Black Beauty as in the original novel, and is narrated by Alan Cumming as the voice of the 'Black Beauty'. This is the fifth feature film adaptation of the 1877 classic novel by Anna Sewell.

Nathan presents the totally unrelated 1997 film, Dance With the Devil:
Perdita Durango, released as Dance with the Devil in the United States, is a 1997 Spanish/Mexican action-crime film directed by Álex de la Iglesia, based on Barry Gifford's novel 59° and Raining: The Story of Perdita Durango. It stars Javier Bardem as Romeo Dolorosa and co-stars Rosie Perez. It was inspired by Magdalena Solís and the Hernandez Brothers sect.
