The lights go down and everyone is in their seats glued to the screen. Trying to maintain my composure and stuffing candy in my face, I sit quietly waiting for the movie start. Music fills the air and the movie takes flight.

 

The Greatest Showman is the one of the best movies I have seen in quite a while. With Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Zendaya acting some of the main characters, makes the movie even better. Hugh Jackman plays the main character P.T Barnum, the man who started one of the first circus’. Zac Efron plays Phillip the apprentice of Barnum, and Zendaya plays Ann, the acrobat, whom falls in love with Phillip.  

 

The movie is a musical, and who doesn’t like a musical? I LOVED it so much! The storyline is about P.T. Barnum, who was a poor boy who fell in love with a rich girl. He longs to be with her and make a better life for himself. The two come together later in the movie and make a new life for themselves. Barnum starts a circus; unique people join his show. Such as, the bearded lady who sings magnificently. The story goes on showing how Barnum seeks status and neglecting the people closest to him. In the end, it comes together, ending on a good note.

 

Hugh Jackman is one of my all-time favorite actors because of his voice. He is a great singer and brought this story of Barnum to life with his voice. My favorite songs he sings are A Million Dreams, Come Alive and From Now On.

 

Zac Efron and Zendaya sing a beautiful duet during the movie.The song they sing is called Rewrite the Stars. The song is about how they want to be with each, but Ann refuses too. She is a black woman and he’s a white man. She sings how society won’t accept them as a couple while Phillip sings how he doesn’t care about what others think and they fly through the air in a breathtaking routine.

 

I learned a powerful lesson from the movie: No one is same and all of us have something to offer to the world. It made me realize that everyone is made different so we could be unique and help others find their talent in their lives. We should treat each with respect and learn about each others talents. We are all the same because we are all unique. I loved this about the movie.

 

If you love musicals as much as me, you’ll want to see this! It features so many, unique songs and you’ll fall in love with all the characters. If you don’t like musicals, watch it anyway. Who knows, this may be the movie that changes you forever. After all, Barnum is the Greatest Showman.
