Water For Elephants, staring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon, just finished filming yesterday but is already a very highly anticipated movie both by fans of the novel by Sara Gruen and Rob-fans alike. In this Depression Era story, Pattinson plays a veterinary student turned drifter who becomes the vet for a circus. The role is sure to reveal yet another layer of his amazing versatility and talent!
IMDb.com – “When Jacob Jankowski, recently orphaned and suddenly adrift, jumps onto a passing train, he enters a world of freaks, drifters, and misfits, a second-rate circus struggling to survive during the Great Depression, making one-night stands in town after endless town. A veterinary student who almost earned his degree, Jacob is put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It is there that he meets Marlena, the beautiful young star of the equestrian act, who is married to August, the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. He also meets Rosie, an elephant who seems untrainable until he discovers a way to reach her. Water for Elephants is illuminated by a wonderful sense of time and place. It tells a story of a love between two people that overcomes incredible odds in a world in which even love is a luxury that few can afford.”
Water For Elephants premieres in theaters 15 April 2011 in the US.
