Water for Elephants...

Water for Elephants...
Was such a great film!
 I didn't think I could picture Mr.Vampire, with Sweet Home Alabama girl.. but turns out, they worked, they fit perfectly together in this film. (Even if she is a decade older then him). I like the feeling you got from watching the movie, it is set back in the early 1900's, during the depression. I just love that time period; the way it looked, the fashion, the different class of people, even the Circus, it just felt real to me. That's how a Circus should be..
I am going to say the ending is goodit's the kind of romantic ending you'd want in a film
But during the movie, there are a few parts with torturing animals, I'm a huge animal lover, so to watch that; even if it is just 'acting', is still hard for me.. 
Rosie, the Elephant in the film, is such a sweet creature, I love Elephants to death, they are one of my favorite animals! It amazes me how they could train Elephants to do those kind of tricks, it's so crazy! I just wish they didn't have to harm these beautiful animals enable for them to do these tricks..  
I haven't been to a Circus in awhile, but watching this, makes me wish the old time Circuses would come back. (Just without the torturing animals part.. and Red Lighting people off a train..eeek).
But do go see it! It's worth it!
 If you have seen already, did you like it?
and Thank you Ty for taking me :)
