Water For Elephants is a dark, violent, yet beautiful love story. It’s a gorgeous film to look at, and an easy one fall into. It stands out as one of my favorites of 2011, if for nothing else for it’s unique style of telling the story of a passionate love triangle. Going in I wasn’t convinced on the casting, but was fast sold the undeniable chemistry of these actors. Pattinson really holds his own, and at times fills the screen with a surprising strong percents. Not an easy task next to the likes of Reese Witherspoon, and Christoph Waltz. I enjoyed this movie much more than I expected. I now wish I would have taken the time to see it on the big screen.
LIFE IS THE MOST SPECTACULAR SHOW ON EARTH
Based on Sara Gruen’s epic novel about forbidden love, and directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Francis Lawrence (Constantine), WATER FOR ELEPHANTS stars Robert Pattinson as Jacob, a man devastated by the sudden death of his parents at the height of The Depression. When Jacob abandons his veterinary studies and stows away on a train carrying circus performers, his life is changed forever. Hired as a veterinarian to care for the circus’ animals, Jacob is temporarily filled with the promise of an exciting life that comes with a traveling circus troupe.
However, as he falls in love with the star of the show, Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), they become prey to the circus’s owner, Marlena’s abusive husband August (Christoph Waltz). With their love on the line, the circus begins to crumble from within, and Jacob and Marlena come to a crossroads that will forever change their destiny.
