When P.T. Barnum loses his job after the company’s bankruptcy, he sets out to finally give his family the life he promised them by reinventing himself as ‘The Greatest Showman’. 

 He starts putting together a circus, trying to create a show like nobody’s ever seen before. But for a unique show, he’ll need unique performers unafraid to stand out – after all, no-one ever made a difference by being like everyone else. 

Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams and Zendaya star in ‘The Greatest Showman’, a soaring musical with songs by the Academy Award-winning songwriters behind ‘La La Land’.

I admit it. I have now seen TGS over 30 times and I'm still not done! My local Odeon will be thrilled when this film finally ends its run (will it ever?) so that they don't have to see me grinning and tunelessly belting out "This Is Me" when I emerge at the end of the film. I know it plays fast and loose with history. I know the real-life Barnum was not exactly the squeaky-clean character portrayed by the wonderful Mr Jackman, but it's bright, cheerful, colourful and IT'S A MUSICAL! What more could you ask for? "Wolverine: The Musical", anyone? Oh, yes!

The songs sounded better in the trailer and the backgrounds/CGI was appalling. Story was quite interesting and setting unique. Zac Efron and Zedanya were great. Still prefer Grease and La la land.
