The Greatest Showman (PG)

Director Michael Gracey. Biography/Drama/Musical

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed for cheers and respectability showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?

Starring Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Excellent film and acting but needed subtitles. Thoroughly enjoyed by audience.

Score based on exit-poll voting! Most of the audience enjoyed though for me the production too much fairy tale without a real storyline. Undoubtedly spectacular musical performances to lift the heart

Definitely marmite film. Many had been before and loved it but others didn't like it. It was history, it was modern, it showed diversity, it was controversial.It had a feel good factor..
