Water For Elephants

Robert Pattinson stars as a young man by the name of Jacob Jankowski. The book turned movie has proven to have some critics in tears with the high level of emotion injected into the movie from scene one.

Water For Elephants tells the story of a young vet who leaves his promising future to join a travelling circus as their vet after his parents pass away. The story been told by an older Jacob, 90yrs old, is retold in a way that portrays the circus to be both his salvation and a living hell.

Leaving his studies only a short time before receiving his degree, Robert Pattinson was tasked with providing care to the entire fleet of circus animals. No good story would be complete without a forbidden romance and that is where Marlena comes into play, Reese Witherspoon. Marlena, married to August who plays the villain role throughout the film, develops a love for Jacob that will test the limits of any true relationship.

During the story Jacob meets Rosie, an untrainable elephant who with which Jacob and Marlena develop a strong relationship built on trust and love which will be tested to the limits.

Overall the movie delivers to the audience and provides justice to the book as good as any in the past.
