Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

I've been seeing a preview for this before movies for 7 years it feels like.

I also didn't know it was a musical, but I should have realized that given the cast full of singers.

I really enjoy musicals. I think they would be hard to see in theaters without subtitles though.

Watched this Saturday. I liked it. Was a fun movie/musical even though it's not entirely accurate.

Were you familiar with the true story going into the movie or you researched it after?

Maria said it wasn't accurate. I'm not sure how she knows though.
I've pieced together some of his story from various podcasts.

It was a fun movie. Maria has seen it like 2 or 3 times, and her sister has seen it over 4+ times.

Wow!!! Do they regularly see the same movie in theaters? Are they movie pass holders?

Nope. They just like it that much.

Watched this over the weekend since it's out on digital now. I did really enjoy some of the specific songs/choreography, but this movie largely wasn't for me and I knew that going into it. I could watch Efron and Jackman sing at a bar while the bartender waited on them all day though.

I would like to see a biopic about the real story though, because it is much darker and not so jolly. I'm not saying the movie was wrong in the way it presented things, it achieved it's goal of being entertaining, but I want to know the details between the songs that the movie glossed over.
