Veterinary student Jacob Jankowski runs away and joins a circus during the depression. Along the way he falls for the married performer, Marlena. Based on the book by Sara Gruen. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, Christoph Waltz, Hal Holbrook
Having not read the book, I will say, this film lived up to the hype of the book. It was wonderfully done. The cinematography is beautiful. The costumes were amazing. Sure, the chemistry between Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattison wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worse. The lack of chemistry sure didn’t take away from they’re acting and it helped heighten Christoph Waltz’s performance as a mad man. If you enjoyed the book, I wouldn’t shy away from the movie.
