A veterinary student abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet.
Based on the acclaimed bestseller of the same name, the movie “Water For Elephants” presents an unexpected romance in a uniquely compelling setting. Veterinary school student Jacob (Robert Pattinson) meets and falls in love with Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), a star performer in a circus of a bygone era. They discover beauty amidst the world of the Big Top, and come together through their compassion for a special elephant. Against all odds — including the wrath of Marlena’s charismatic but dangerous husband, August (Oscar winner Christoph Waltz, “Inglorious Basterds”) — Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.
