Water For Elephants Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Academy Award® Winners Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz join Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga) for this epic tale of forbidden love based on Sara Gruen’s acclaimed best seller. Against all odds, a veterinary student (Pattinson) and a beautiful circus performer from a bygone era (Witherspoon), meet and fall in love through their shared compassion for a special elephant. But their secret romance incurs the wrath of her dangerously volatile husband (Waltz).

Review: Water For Elephants is one of the first major departures for Robert Pattinson since the Twilight series and I must admit, he had a lot to prove to me.  Reese Witherspoon, on the other hand, proved to me with her role in Vanity Fair that she can pull off period drama.   The film centers around two people that fall in love that shouldn't.  Christopher Waltz reprises his role as a type-cast scary bastard and he plays it well!   The film ends up being emotional, driven and dark.  The power of true love is at danger with the violence that Waltz brings to the table.  Can they make it out alive?  This one is a must-see for drama-lovers!
