Water For Elephants

"There's nothing wrong with me, I'm just old." 
Hal Holbrook as older Jacob

I saw this film last night with a dear friend and here's my review:  Read The Book.  Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon are miscast.  Christoph Walz is perfectly cast, and yet, the most moving performance in the film is done by Rosie.  She's the elephant.  The film is beautifully shot and has some classic circus characters that are well-acted but overall the film is predictable and cliched.  If you want some light entertainment and beautiful people, go see it.  If you want heart and soul, Read the Book.
