The Greatest Showman (2017)
Hugh Jackman has a certain sincerity which is synonymous with all his performances, and this long cherished dream of his shows us every ounce of it.
Debut director Michael Gracey has made a stunning film, an original musical which has great performances from the principal cast, namely Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya.
The central premise is a risky venture, but isn’t every worthwhile idea a step, or many, outside our comfort zone? A noteworthy supporting cast communicates many messages; prejudice, equality, loyalty and unique individualality to name a few.
An entertaining and heart warming tale which is predictable yet endearing.
