My husband Tom and I don’t have many date nights so when we do, it’s very special! Fortunately, for us Christina was free last night to stay with Sara and Amanda, so we went to see the movie Water on Elephants. She had already seen this movie and had enjoyed watching it. Many times when we go to a movie and I ask Tom afterwards if he liked it, he almost always says, “It was okay.” This time he said, “It was good.”
Reese Witherspoon and Patterson are great as Marlena and Jacob. I was a bit afraid we’d get there too late to see the beginning, but we got there a few mintues before it started. Hal Halbrooks is in the beginning and end. He portrays the elderly Jacob. In case, you haven’t heard of this movie, here is a brief synopsis:
After his parents’ death, Jacob Jankoski is left penniless and homeless. Events lead him to joining the circus as their vet, working under their unstable boss August whose violent tendencies give everyone reason to be cautious around him, including his beautiful and quiet wife Marlena, whom August is very possessive of and who Jacob finds himself soon falling in love with.
