Sometimes you catch a film by pure chance, and it suddenly captures your whole heart and entire imagination. Water For Elephants is this in a nutshell.
Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon play firm leads, and both equally sparkle. I love the kind nature of this film, it reminds me so much of The Notebook – how the story of true everlasting love is told in such a nostalgic and magical way.
The undeniable star of the film is Rosie – the elephant, seeing such a towering animal on screen made my heart skip a beat. I became so enticed by her presence, and grand entrance, I felt a great urge to research elephant history.
Discovering this film, coincides with planning a very exciting travel adventure for 2015. I’m absolutely saddened to learn that so many elephants are unfairly treated in the world. With this thought it mind it has made me more determined to visit a dedicated sanctuary which cares for elephants in a positive way and give them the gratitude and respect they truly deserve.
I absolutely adore this film. Go watch.
