Sara Gruen’s Book Water For Elephants was a masterpiece and while books are always better than the movie, this movie came pretty darn close.
A few changes were made from the book but the movie captures the essence of the book masterfully. The cinematography alone deserves awards. The set design and costumes are the best I’ve seen since The Titanic.
The cast is sublime. Robert Pattinson proves that he is more than a pretty face. While he still seems to be stiff a couple of times his performance is spot on. His work with Rosie(Tai)the elephant melted my heart. Tai herself stole almost every shot she was in. Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz remind the viewer why they are Academy Award winners. Francis Lawrence’s direction and vision for the movie truly transports the viewer to the 1930’s. I’ve seen the movie 3 times and I know I’ll go back to see it again. I’ll be buying the DVD the day it is released too. The movie is a must see in my opinion.
