The Greatest Showman

I "The Greatest Showman" følgjer vi den amerikanske visjonæren P. T. Barnum, som ut av ingenting lukkast i å skape eit spektakulært show som fascinerte menneske over heile verda.

I hovudrolla som Barnum finn vi Hugh Jackman, medan namn som Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson og Zac Efron også står på rollelista. Filmen er regissert av filmskaparen Michael Gracey, med songar av Oscar-vinnerene Benj Pasek og Justin Paul ("La La Land").


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? Written by Nick Riganas
