True Story/Drama/Musical   105 mins   PG

Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman), The Greatest Showman tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. With Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and Rebecca Ferguson as Jenny Lind.

 “A sizzling explosion of colour, music and joie de vivre, The Greatest Showman is a toe-tapping, life enforcing celebration, reinforcing that 'a man's station is limited only by his imagination'. . .It's a feel-good Hollywood fantasy that whisks us away to a world filled with song and dance, beneath which bubbles an undercurrent of discrimination and longing for acceptance. Admittedly there is little substance beneath the gloss, but nonetheless the film is a crowd pleaser.”  Urban Cinefile

 “What it is in essence is a joyously uplifting potpourri of visual resplendence, stylish choreography and solid gold magic, one engineered to approximate the lavish spectacle the movie musical once offered – a winning combination that won’t fail to resonate with every admirer of the all-singing, all-dancing art form.”  Radio Times
