Water for Elephants is based on the bestselling book by the same name. The story is about a veterinary school student Jacob, played by Pattinson, and a circus performer Marlena, played by Witherspoon) who meet and fall in love. Their love for each other grows as they care for a special elephant. Unfortunately, Marlena is married and her abusive husband played by Christopher Waltz, is none too happy about the whole Jacob and Marlena thing.
“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 is scheduled to hit the theaters April 15, 2011.
