Water for Elephants did much better than expected at the box office this past weekend. The film follows Jacob Jankowski, who finds himself on a traveling circus after he loses his entire family in a car accident.
It explores the theme of perception vs. reality. A circus is a spectacle, but what happens behind the curtains is an entirely different story.
Relive the magic of the circus with these quotes from the film. If you haven't seen the film, read our Water for Elephants review and see it for yourself.
