  • A handsome veterinary student falls for a married circus performer in this romantic drama adapted from author Sara Gruen's best-selling novel, and directed by Francis Lawrence (I AM LEGEND). When Jacob (Robert Pattinson) meets Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), it's love at first sight -- their shared affections for an extraordinary elephant stirring profound feelings of compassion within both of them. Theirs is a love that could span lifetimes, though the wrath of Marlena's dangerously domineering husband, August (Christoph Waltz), threatens to spell tragedy for all involved.

  • Critic Reviews
    "There is quite a bit to enjoy in a film that certainly qualifies as broad-based popular entertainment....The romance of the carnival is strong in this film..."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[Witherspoon] brings a nicely nuanced ambivalence to her role."
    Total Film

    "Pattinson and Witherspoon smolder under the golden gaze of Rodrigo Prieto's camera."
    Rolling Stone

    3 stars out of 4 -- "The production designer, Jack Fisk, has created a believable one-ring circus here, and even the train itself has a personality."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[C]inematographer Rodrigo Prieto brings much of the elegance he displayed in BIUTIFUL and BABEL to this film, building on the colourful, carnivalesque look of his earlier FRIDA."
