In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean, who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert after breaking parole, agrees to care for a factory worker's daughter. The decision changes their lives forever.
Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
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 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?Written by
Barnum was embarrassed by one picture of himself with a lady performer. A photo taken in Matthew Brady's studio shows him ogling a dancer named Ernestine de Faiber in 1864. See more »
When Barnum met his wife on the beach it was just a bare minimum sunset. When they kissed, the sky was very red and orange. See more »
I've brought hardship on you and on our family. You warned me. I wouldn't listen. I just... I wanted to be more than I was.
I never wanted anything but the man I fell in love with.
And let this promise/in me start/like an anthem in my heart/
However big/however small
From now on... from now on

"The Noblest Art Is That Of Making Others Happy." - P.T. Barnum See more »
This is possibly one of the best films I have ever seen in this genre.
From the start to finish, I felt that there was some inaudible and invisible metronome setting the overall pace of the film, a consistent rhythm within many rhythms, if that makes sense. Everything about this film had perfect timing. Editing was seamless. Attention to detail was mind blowing, costumes outstanding. Special effects... whoa. Acting was flawless. I really can't find anything to criticize.
To summarize in a sentence, first class family entertainment.
