I'm switching 'W' and 'V' in the A to Z Challenge. Yep, it's happening. :) I hope you'll forgive my second switch of the month, but I was fortunate enough to see Water for Elephants last Saturday. I didn't want to keep my review in limbo for too long. Feel free to eat up these delicious one hundred words with a golden spork!
Robert Pattinson plays Jacob, a Cornell almost-grad who loses everything when his parents die the day of his final veterinarian exams. He hops a circus train to escape his life. With a schizophrenic ringmaster (Waltz), a bewitching main act (Witherspoon), and a four ton elephant, Jacob keeps busy. Pattinson shows us he’s more than a sparkling tween idol, but Waltz steals the show with his terrifying Jekyll and Hyde routine. Witherspoon is lovely, the menagerie impresses 'rubes' and moviegoers alike, and Rosie the Elephant reminds that animals feel, understand, and love just like humans. A beautiful two hours!
And that's it!
April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month, and this movie was a great reminder that our furry friends need a hand every so often. Open your heart when you're able. Trust me. You won't regret it!
AND another Water for Elephants fan, the lovely Zan Marie at In the Shade of the Cherry Tree, is five followers away from a major milestone. Can anyone help her out? It'll be fun. Would I, could I, lie to you?
I'll announce the Deathly Hallows Blu-Ray winner tomorrow! Thanks for everyone who threw out their fave characters. We all know the Cheetah likes her bad boys. *cough* Malfoy *cough*
