Pattinson’s eagerly anticipated “Water for Elephants” is based on the acclaimed best-seller by Sara Gruen. The story revolves around a veterinary school student Jacob (Pattinson), who meets and falls in love with Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), a star performer in a circus around the time of the Great Depression. They discover beauty amidst the world of the Big Top and connect over their compassion for a special elephant. Against all odds — including the wrath of Marlena’s charismatic but dangerous husband, August (Christoph Waltz) — Jacob and Marlena pursue lasting love.
“Water for Elephants” hits theaters on April 22.
