Water For Elephants (PG)


Robert Pattinson flees his blood-sucking past to become a different kind of monster—a carny!—in Water for Elephants, a lush, historical romance set amid a traveling circus in 1931. It’s beautiful to look at but ultimately plodding and predictable, although Pattinson and co-star Reese Witherspoon (in a role that plays to her winsome strengths) have heat. Christoph Waltz adds color as a deranged circus master.
