WATCH A SCENE FROM THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, "THIS IS ME"!
Focus on the Family's Plugged In review
"Hugh Jackman, who stars as P.T. Barnum here, recently compared the iconic character he portrays to "Elon Musk or Steve Jobs." Like those men, Barnum was truly an innovator. He constantly challenged the rules of traditional society, creating an unprecedented world of wonder as he invited audiences to gaze into the great and the unknown, the majestic and the mysterious. "Comfort," he opined, was "the enemy of progress."
Barnum's extravagant circus performances appealed to huge audiences. But those shows also generated criticism from some who felt the great showman's work was nothing but an immoral spectacle. The Greatest Showman paints a portrait of the metaphorical tightrope P.T. Barnum walked, and we're drawn into his mesmerizing world where dreams take flight. There, all individuals have value, family is esteemed highly, and fidelity is shown to be the bedrock of marriage.
It's a place where you feel as if anything is possible, that any dreamer can conquer the world. You might even stand to leave with a feeling of true joy thinking, as did Barnum, "The greatest art is of making others happy."
