Inspired by the imagination of P. T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
Having only recently watched this movie after wanting to watch it since it was released, I was not disappointed even after such a long wait. I absolutely love Hugh Jackman and he has proven his versatility as an actor and performer.
The story line is great as I love rags to riches/strive to success feel good movies which are always popular around Christmas and this movie does not disappoint.
Zac Efron also makes an apprearance with his love interest Zendaya both from Disney channel fame looking much more mature even though they are still within the same genre they are well known for.
The movie is full of ups and downs, fun and games and a lot of songs to tap and sing-a-long to. If you don’t like musicals, this might be a bit annoying but I would recommend it regardless.
