A Captivating Novel Adaptation
This movie is set in 1931 in the great depression time.
Jacob Jankowski (Robert Pattinson) raised in a Polish family in America and studying to be a Vet like his Dad. But in the midst of his exam he is informed a shocking news that his parents died in a car accident.
Young Jacob then find himself adrift with no house and no family.
While walking on the side of a train track he jumped into a train for a free ride that he thought might take him to another city. But as faith brought him on board,The train belongs to a second rate circus group filled with circus performers, workers, animals and the boss of the circus group the charismatic August (Christopher Waltz) and his beautiful wife Marlena (Resse Witherspoon).
This movie is beautifully made!
Robert Pattinson brought about a nice potrayal of Jacob. A young man struggling for life and love. The shots in this movie is beautiful as well. There are so many emotional up and down felt in this movie. It makes me forget that Edward the Vampire is in the movie. So, kudos for Robert Pattinson for taking it up another level of good performance.
The talented Resse Witherspoon perform nicely it is hard to tell whether a stunt made that jump up and down the horse and elephant. The chemistry between her and her two male co-stars are blended nicely.
But Christoph Waltz! Oh, Christoph Waltz! Man, this dude sure brings the key performance. As the brutal circus owner and a possessive husband. I love this guy! He's so good. I think he can play any role!
Anyway, this novel adaptation movie itself is worth watching. Francis Lawrence makes it shocking beginning, funny in the middle and tragical and so many other emotions could come up while watching this movie.
It is a suitable movie where you can take your boyfriend and girlfriend to watch.
