KA-Water-For-Elephants Rating 3 out of 5


  • Francis Lawrence


  • Robert Pattinson
  • Reese Witherspoon
  • Christoph Waltz
  • James Frain


In this glossy adaptation of Sara Gruen's bestseller, Robert Pattinson plays Jacob Jankowski, a veterinary student who abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a travelling circus as their vet. He falls in love with performer Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), incurring the wrath of her violent husband (Christoph Waltz) and also bonds with a circus elephant. I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence crafts a solidly old-fashioned romantic drama with a strong performance from Pattinson showing that his career's unlikely to be eclipsed by the Twilight saga.
