Water for Elephants | ★★★★★★★★

Every once in a while a movie comes along that takes us back to a former time when American life was so different. This movie paints such a story as it takes us to a depression era circus where a young grieving man is taken in and finds purpose in the midst of chaos and dysfunction.

The tagline "Life is the most spectacular show on earth" speaks to the heart of the story line. I think that the story is revealed in these things that Jacob, the hero of the story, says.
  • I don't know if I picked that circus.
    But something told me that circus picked me.
  • You're a beautiful woman, you deserve a beautiful life. Nothing less.
  • I'm not running away, I'm coming home.
The story spoke to me about the cost of having courage of conviction and how kindness can overpower brute force. I recommend this movie to you and, on a scale of ten, I give it ★★★★★★★★.


  1. I saw this on the plane when flying back to Kuwait from Colorado. Pattinson was perfect for the part. The story had that classic feel to it.

  2. Tonya has been wanting to watch this. I think we'll give it a try
