Film: Water for elephants.
Director: Francis Lawrence.
Actors: Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.
Water for elephant is Francis Lawrence. This film is set in the 30s. The protagonists are Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.
When Jacob`s father died, he decided to go away aimlessly. In his way he met the famous Benzini Brother’s circus and Marlena, the owner’s wife and the trainer of Rose, the elephant. This leaded to a typical impossible love story. The climax occurs when the circus´ owner finally found them and the film ends unexpectedly.
The director achieved an excellent thirties´ ambience with great costumes.
Pattinson and Witherspoon play the roles of Jacob and Marlena very consistently and convincingly. In the scene where they finally kiss each other they reach their highest acting level.
In my opinion this mainstream film is very good. I recommend it.
