#50. Circus Rosaire - Review

Circus Rosaire posterCircus Rosaire is a thoughtful documentary that follows the remarkable members of the Rosaire family, an eccentric clan of animal trainers that have devoted their lives to the art of the circus for nine generations. The film does a wonderful job introducing us to the remarkable individuals who sacrifice day in and day out caring for and training their wide assortment of animals.  Not only a vehicle to showcase and prove the family’s dedication, Circus Rosaire reveals the hardships of the circus, its slow fall from cultural relevance, and also its many detractors, mainly from animal rights groups. This humble little documentary packs a surprising amount of emotional punch, effortlessly moving from moments of sadness and loss to spontaneous hilarity, the way only true life can.
