During the Great Depression homeless veterinary student Jacob (Pattinson) joins a struggling circus and falls in love with its star attraction, animal trainer Marlena (Witherspoon). When Marlena’s husband, tyrannical circus owner August (Waltz), acquires an unhappy elephant, Jacob and Marlena bond over her care, inflaming the unstable August’s vicious streak...
Familiar but enjoyable. Not being funny, the elephant (Rosie, played by nine-foot enchantress Tai) is the real star as the most moving and only joyful presence in sight.
