Movie Info

After a three year stint in prison, the charming but hot-headed Lee Riley returns to Los Angeles to win back the girlfriend he left behind, alluring and headstrong Kate Caldwell. Despite having moved on and grown into an independent woman, Kate agrees to let him stay while he looks for an apartment and soon enough, the pair falls back into their old patterns, losing themselves in an ardent relationship once more. Yet, as the free-spirited nature of their romance starts to tear down the life Kate has built, she finds herself losing her new identity but unable to let Lee go. Likewise, Lee starts to wonder if the buoyant memories from their past are preventing him from growing up and becoming something more.

"Elephants" almost works, but it self-destructs with as much frequency as its damaged characters.

A great film about toxic love, and I hope people seek it out.

Elephants is an authentic film that channels the emotions of pain, love, and nostalgia. Drawn from the experiences of the writers Alex Hanno and Luca Malacrino, Elephants is an honest look at what happens to young love when you grow older.

Romantic scenes ring true in 'Elephants,' and the lovers' fiery arguments remind me of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's ferocious interactions in 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'

Elephants is a film worth watching, but when it's all said and done, it's a good story with a good setup but sadly with a very safe payoff at the end.
