Water For Elephants (2011)
|A veterinary student abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet.|
Editor's NoteA handsome veterinary student falls for a married circus performer in this romantic drama adapted from author Sara Gruen's best-selling novel, and directed by Francis Lawrence (I AM LEGEND).

Theirs is a love that could span lifetimes, though the wrath of Marlena's dangerously domineering husband, August (Christoph Waltz), threatens to spell tragedy for all involved.
