The Greatest Showman

♣♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

PT Barnum (Hugh Jackman) is the son of a tailor and grows up poor. His lofty ambitions in life are fueled by his humble beginnings as well as that constant feeling of always having to prove himself and never being welcomed. He has found his one true love in Charity (Michelle Williams), the daughter of a wealthy man and way out of his league. Despite being worlds apart in terms of social status, they end up together and raise two daughters. However, dreams never really die. With the help of improvisation and a limitless imagination, what starts off as a museum of curiosities becomes a full-fledged circus after he convinces socialite playwright Phillip Carlyle (Zac Efron) to switch careers and invest on his show. Flanked by criticisms as well as accusations of exploitation and selling novelty for profit, Barnum will not stop until he conquers New York society, but to what extent?
