“The Greatest Showman,” directed by Michael Gracey, came out over winter break and was made up of a great cast, magical performances, and altogether an amazing experience.

The movie begins with showing a young P.T. Barnum and how he came up with the ideas to start a “circus” full of unique and odd individuals.

With the circus being so successful and popular, Barnum goes out looking for a partner in his business and finds Mr. Bailey, a famous play writer who

Barnum convinces to help with performances. Soon things start to get out of hand as protesters say that it’s just a freakshow and that the performers should go back to where ever they came from.

With Barnum away on a trip to build his own career many things go wrong at the circus.

“The Greatest Showman” is a movie about being proud of who you are and that you shouldn’t let people drag you down, but also how you should appreciate what you already have and not be blinded by fame.

The movie has an astounding cast like Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya, Michelle Williams, and Rebecca Ferguson.

The film also won a Golden Globe for best motion picture- musical or comedy.

The movie is an extremely realistic version of how people see beauty differently, and it is a great family movie.
