After reading Water for Elephants, a romantic, vivid story of a circus in 1931, I was enthralled by the gruesome glamour. I finally saw the movie last night, and it was as beautiful and tragic as I had imagined it to be. The costumes were dead on. Jacqueline West's portrayal of the 1930's is breathtaking. From the costumes of the "rubes" to the grand dresses made for Reese Witherspoon's character, Marlena, the characters' glamour and authenticity oozes off the screen.
