Editorial Reviews from Amazon.com:
Sara Gruen’s bestselling novel comes to glossy life in this period romance. A sparkle-free Robert Pattinson plays Jacob Jankowski, who studies veterinary medicine during the Great Depression. After a family tragedy, he loses everything, including the chance to graduate from prestigious Cornell, so he hops a train, where he finds himself part of the struggling Benzini Brothers Circus. Ringleader August (Christoph Waltz, echoing his Oscar-winning Inglourious Basterds performance) has doubts about the softhearted lad, but a fellow Pole smoothes the way, and Jacob becomes the company vet, which leads him to platinum-blond equestrian Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), August’s wife. The two make eyes at each other, but an affair would surely end badly, so they concentrate on their work. When Marlena’s prize steed falls ill, August purchases an elephant, hoping Rosie will turn their fortunes around, and enlists Jacob to train her. Unfortunately, she’s slow to respond to commands until Jankowski unlocks her secret–and after August has beaten the poor thing into submission. After that, things start to look up until Jacob steals a kiss from his dream girl. As in The Notebook, the film it most closely resembles, an elderly version of the central character (Hal Holbrook, touching) narrates in the present day (screenwriter Richard LaGravenese also adapted The Bridges of Madison County). He tells an interesting tale, so it’s too bad the leads strike so few sparks. For those who find big-top classics like Nightmare Alley too dark, however, Francis Lawrence’s feel-better variant may be just the ticket. –Kathleen C. Fennessy
ACADEMY AWARD® Winners Reese Witherspoon* and Christoph Waltz** join Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga) for this epic tale of forbidden love based on Sara Gruen’s acclaimed best seller. Against all odds, a veterinary student (Pattinson) and a beautiful circus performer from a bygone era (Witherspoon), meet and fall in love through their shared compassion for a special elephant. But their secret romance incurs the wrath of her dangerously volatile husband (Waltz).
A fellow Robert Pattinson fan site and one of my affiliates, LetMeSign.com, has done something absolutely incredible!
They were fortunate enough to be able to attend the New York City premiere of Water for Elephants via the red carpet that took place on April 17th. Using their good fortune, they were able to get several of the lead cast to sign a copy of the movie tie-in book and decided to auction off their copy. The book was autographed by Robert Pattinson (“Jacob”), Reese Witherspoon (“Marlena”), author Sara Gruen, & Mark Povinelli (“Kinko”)!
With over twenty bids and what barely started above $30.00 USD ended on an amazing $480 USD! Yes, that’s right! Four-hundred and eighty dollars. The auction winning’s will be donated to Avon’s Foundation for Women: Speak out Against Domestic Violence. That’s awesome!
Thank you, LetMeSign.com! This makes me so proud to be affiliated with you guys! You rock!!!

From The People’s Choice Buzz Blog: So even though Rio won at the box office again this weekend, I’m betting yesterday’s Easter candy that any number of you broke down and saw Water For Elephants, right? You just couldn’t resist a bestselling book, a sweeping epic period piece, and at least three adorable creatures (1. Rosie the elephant, 2. Queenie the Jack Russell Terrier, and 3. Robert Pattinson).
What a funny interview! Definitely a must-watch!
