I read the book "Water for Elephants" a few years ago .. so it wasn't recent enough in my head to make me want to watch the movie with any real excitement.
BUT -- watching the movie made me remember what a good book it was! The movie definitely does it justice, but the best part was the 1930's wardrobes and costumes!
LOVE the headpieces!!!
There's also some fab evening gowns ... definitely worth a watch if you come across it.
