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
Hugh Jackman stated that this film was the hardest he prepared for compared to Logan (2017). See more »
At the start of the movie we see young PT and Charity at the sea shore. Barnum was born and raised in Bethel, CT which is a good 22 miles from the Long Island Sound beach in Bridgeport. Also, Long Island is easily visible from the Bridgeport beach but is nowhere to be seen in this movie. See more »
Where is that singing coming from?
[Barnum spots Lettie behind a curtain. She stops singing]
Ma'am, you are...
[he pulls the curtain back, revealing Lettie's bearded face. Barnum pauses]
You need to leave, sir.
You are beautiful. You are unique.

I have never written a movie review but I couldn't let this jewel of a movie be slammed by the cynical critics without saying how much I loved it. This was the perfect movie for our family on Christmas Day. Don't pay attention to the "professional" reviews; judge by the moviegoers who are praising the movie. It was moving, upbeat, and romantic. Can't say enough good things about it. Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Zendaya are all so talented. Go see it in the theater to really appreciate how magical this movie is.
