The Greatest Showman is a biographical musical that stars Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum, who starts out as a penniless orphan but becomes the world-renowned creator of the modern circus.
The film is filled with social commentary about classism, racism and prejudice but overpowered by love, pursuance of happiness, and passion over financial success. The film is made for the whole family to enjoy, and so it leaves out much of Barnum’s darker history.
The Greatest Showman is a feel-good musical celebrating diversity and the importance of embracing people of all kinds as it carries themes that will relate to most audiences.
