R-Pattz and Reese Witherspoon talk Elephants with the movie charity…
Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Water For Elephants - have been chatting to FILMCLUB, the education charity and experts in film for young people, about making the new Great Depression-era drama which is on general release in UK cinemas now.
13-year-old FILMCLUB member Josh chatted to the stars at the film’s UK premiere about their roles in the new movie and what it was like to work with an elephant as a co-star. Josh also interviewed the film’s director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend, Constantine) and producer Erwin Stoff (The Matrix, I Am Legend) about what inspired them to make the film.
Water For Elephants, based on the novel by Sara Gruen, is set during the Great Depression, and follows the story of Jacob (Robert Pattinson), a penniless 23-year-old veterinary school student who parlays his expertise with animals into a job with a second-rate travelling circus. He falls in love with Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), one of the show’s star performers, but their romance is complicated by Marlena’s husband, the charismatic but unbalanced circus boss (Christoph Waltz).
FILMCLUB is a nationwide education charity, which helps schools set-up and run film clubs, giving young people the chance to watch, debate and review the very best in cinema.
