From The Stir:
Water for Elephants has all of the makings of an awesome film: An attractive Reese Witherspoon, a dashingly handsome Robert Pattinson, and an intriguing plot that leaves me wanting more.The trailer (after the jump) tells the story of a young Jacob (Pattinson) as he drops out of Cornell and joins the circus. Based on the 2006 book by Sara Gruen, the movie comes out in April.
Sure — I have my doubts about book-to-film adaptations. But after getting a taste of how good looking Pattinson is here, there’s no way I’m skipping out on this one. And yes — I really mean it. Take off the powdered makeup and film him in the dim lights of the big top … it looks like we have a winner.
If you haven’t read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen yet, I recommend you do! Here’s the story plot:
As a young man, Jacob Jankowski was tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. It was the early part of the great Depression, and for Jacob, now ninety, the circus world he remembers was both his salvation and a living hell. A veterinary student just shy of a degree, he was put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It was there that he met Marlena, the beautiful equestrian star married to August, the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. And he met Rosie, an untrainable elephant who was the great gray hope for this third-rate traveling show. The bond that grew among this unlikely trio was one of love and trust, and, ultimately, it was their only hope for survival.
Grab yourself a copy and read it before the movie comes out!
