Based on the acclaimed number-one bestseller by Sara Gruen, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS presents an epic tale of forbidden love in a magical place filled with adventure, wonder and great danger.
A veterinary student from the wrong side of the tracks, 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 (Christoph Waltz), Jacob saves Marlena from an unhappy life and they find lifelong love.
