I know, I am late to jump on this train! I honestly blame my niece for this new obsession. Brooke (12) saw The Greatest Showman shortly after it came out two years ago, and had asked me almost every time she saw me after that if I had seen it yet.
Well, as of last December, I finally have. And as of April 23, 2019, I’ve watched it at least 3 times, and the entire soundtrack is saved in my Spotify playlist as a frequent favorite for my long commute.
I. Love. This. Movie. It might be a new all time favorite, which is tough to rank in my head because most of my favorites are Marvel films. I think the reason why I’m so obsessed with this movie is that it deeply resonates with my sense of dream-chasing, much like I imagine it does with most viewers of the film.
Without spoiling too much for those who still haven’t seen the film, the movie is a loose interpretation of the life and ambition of Phineas Taylor (P.T.) Barnum, and the origination of the American circus. The storyline follows him as a young boy into adulthood, pursuing a dream of creating a world where the impossible becomes ordinarily beautiful, and the “misfit carnies” find a home and community because of his show.
There’s a lot of hooks this show sank in me:
