The Greatest Showman, the family movie that celebrates diversity

If you are looking for a movie to watch with your kids, who enjoy history, musical theater, and, of course, the circus, The Greatest Showman, is the perfect film for your family.

Inspired by the life of P.T. Barnum, the film is made for the whole family to enjoy, so it leaves out many of the darker elements of Barnum’s real character and life. The story will focus on celebrating diversity, the importance of embracing all kinds, teaching lessons about compassion and that everything is possible as long as you believe in it and work for it.

Directed by Michael Gracey, The Greatest Showman offers a genuine rush of spectacle and wonder, punctuated by 11 memorable songs composed by Oscar- and Tony-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who composed the songs for “La La Land,” as well as the current Broadway hit Dear Evan Hansen.

The beauty of The Greatest Showman is not only limited to its visual appeal – spectacular sets, acrobatic performances, dances and singing ability of its artistes. What also stands the film apart is its relevance to today’s times. It touches upon social issues like class discrimination or aversion towards human abnormalities that continue to plague our society even today.

With the perfect cast for every ages, we get to watch Hugh Jackman, who exudes Barnum’s indomitable spirit, the talented and beautiful Michele Williams as Brunam’s wife, the it girl and new Hollywood sensation, Zendaya co-starring with Zac Efron the movie is likely to appeal not only the younger ones and parents but also teens.
