The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman

 Step right up! A recently released film, “The Greatest Showman,” has been a blockbuster thus far. Released in December 2017, stars Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron catapulted this film to the top while having already grossed over $295 million worldwide. The person who really steals the show is Keala Settle, who plays a bearded lady named Lettie Lutz. Oh my!  So, here is a quick synopsis of the film, as told by fandango.com:  “Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, ‘The Greatest Showman’ is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.” The movie depicts the acceptance as well as the celebration of difference within the circus. The film follows a bearded lady, tattooed man, dog boy, and siamese twins, as well as a few other performers who are otherwise known as “freak shows.” These “freaks” are accepted, though, for who they are, all thanks to P.T. Barnum and his acceptance of all, overlooking certain aspects of people that are obvious to others. P.T. Barnum was a dreamer, and the movie truly shows that. Having trouble financially and taken out a loan to follow his dream and buy Barnum’s American Museum, P.T. Barnum is the quintessential modern man.  He is what many people aspire to be, as well as what many people are. Taking a chance to go with a gut feeling and dream, then doing everything in his power to manifest that dream into something spectacular is amazing. He does this all by giving others a chance when they are not given a chance by anyone else.  With Barnum’s circus having many different types of people, he used love and acceptance to push those through the tough times.  Barnum’s love and acceptance created a community within the circus, which allowed them to block the outside noise and negativity. This movie, and especially P.T. Barnum, shows the ups and downs in one’s life and how family, positivity and acceptance can help anyone get through hard times. It’s modern. It’s now. It’s magic. Anchors To Dusk Publishing gives “The Greatest Showman” an A rating! Who is your favorite character in “The Greatest Showman?” Respond below and let’s talk movies!...
