Devastated by the sudden death of his parents at the height of The Depression, a young dreamer from the wrong side of the tracks, Jacob Jankowski (Pattinson), abandons his veterinary studies at Cornell University. With no other family, no house, and no money, Jacob stows away on a train carrying the circus performers of The Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. Hired as a veterinarian to care for the troupeâ€™s animals, Jacob is temporarily filled with the promise of an exciting life that comes with a traveling circus troupe. However, as he builds a rapport and falls in love with the star of the show, Marlena (Witherspoon), they become prey to the circusâ€™s owner, Marlenaâ€™s violent and abusive husband August (Waltz). As the circus begins to crumble from within and against all odds, Jacob and Marlena come together and fall in love through their compassion for a special elephant. With their love on the line, Jacob and Marlena come to a crossroads that will forever change their destiny.

I was able to review a copy of Water for Elephants. My husband watched it for our date night and we both enjoyed the film. There are parts of the storyline that are dark as one of the main characters is a very evil man so I wouldn’t suggest you watch this title with your kids. It was really interesting to get a bit of a behind-the-scenes look at what circus life might be like. Plus, I loved Reese Witherspoon!
