Jacob and Marlena

In the upcoming film, Water for Elephants starring Robert Pattinson (Twilight) and Reese Witherspoon, (How do you Know?) we are taken on a journey through the lives of circus performers. The film is an original screenplay from the novel written by, New York Times Best Seller author, Sara Gruen.

The story unfolds as Jacob Jankowski, a 93 year-old man living in a nursing home, remembers his life as a 23 year-old travelling with a second-rate circus during the Great Depression era. We see through his memories and witness the events of his life right before our eyes. We see his parents get killed in a tragic car accident, causing the young man, a veterinary school student to drop everything and jump a train in the middle of the night. To his own surprise he jumps onto a circus train.

The owner of the circus, August (Christoph Waltz - who’s also in the upcoming film The Green Hornet), finds out he is a veterinarian and asks him to join them on the road to take care of the animals. Jacob falls in love with one of the star performers, Marlena, (Reese Witherspoon) a beautiful horsewoman, who finds herself torn between forbidden love. Complications arise as she is married to August and Jacob tries with all of his might to be with Marlena. And then there is Rosie, the elephant who ties them all together. We follow along through all of the ups and downs, as heartache arises, and times of happiness continue on with some really touching moments.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and find out if this story has a happy ending! Think about it, they have the 3 ingredients for success; 1. Robert Pattinson 2. Reese Witherspoon 3. A circus filled with entertainment ranging from suspense to breathtaking moments inclduing an elephant doing a headstand!

Be sure to keep an eye out for this film set to hit the big screen in the UK on 4 May 2011!
