Watch GR The Greatest Showman 2017

The Greatest Showman is a 2017 American biographical musical drama film directed by Michael Gracey in his directorial debut, written by Jenny Bicks and Bill Condon and starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya. Featuring nine original songs from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the film is based on the story and life of P.T. Barnum, a famous showman and entertainer, and his creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of its star attractions.

The producers and newcomer director Michael Gracey smartly gathered a fantastic cast beginning with Jackman. Who could pull off the greatest showman other than an amazing showman himself. Jackman made Barnum likable and larger than life all at the same time. Ferguson and Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea) compliment Jackman beautifully and match his fervor. Efron is ok, and even though there is something about him that rubs me the wrong way, he was well cast nonetheless. The real standouts next to Jackman are the circus freaks with special attention paid to Zendaya (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Keala Settle (Ricki and the Flash). These ladies are incredible talents and add to the overall feeling of the film.

Exuberant performances propel this musical biopic, which isn't perfect but does occasionally delight thanks to its stellar cast, led by the inimitable Jackman. There's inherent value in watching the talented Jackman sing and dance, and he's an ideal fit for playing the titular "greatest showman" on earth. The Greatest Showman doesn't delve into some of the uglier aspects of Barnum's life (like all the hoaxes he was accused of committing), but it does manage to entertain audiences with catchy original songs by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the award-winning lyricists for La La Land and the Tony-winning Broadway sensation Dear Evan Hansen. 041b061a72
