Water for Elephants (Movie Review)
on a novel of the same name by Sara Gruen, but I have never read it myself. I
watched this movie because it has a female actress in it I like called ‘Reese
Witherspoon’ and also a male actor I have liked since watching Twilight and decided it was time to see
some of his other movies. Combined, I saw that as enough motive to watch it.
a travelling circus after his parents both die in an accident. Before he knows it
all his money and belongings slip through his fingers, leaving him with
nothing. When he joins the circus as a the man to tend to the elephants, he
doesn’t know what he is getting himself into. He falls into step with an
abusive owner, and falls in love with said owners wife. Things only get more
complicated as he goes along…
animal cruelty within the circus which I thought was brilliant. More people
need to open their eyes to the cruelty that they are paying their money
towards. I know for a fact that my mother has never allowed me to (and know I
am old enough to be aware, I doubt I ever will) go to a circus that includes
animals. Because the only way to train creatures in a circus is by afflicting pain.
The movie shows this best of all. It also falls into human abuse along the way.
easily imagine I was in the allocated time period when I saw all the costumes,
dresses and settings. I loved it. Reese Witherspoon was stunning, as always,
and a really brought her character to life, as she usually does. I think Robert
Pattinson did a very good job of his role as well. I enjoyed this movie.
