Finally saw this badass movie! Could've watched this sooner but we had it scheduled today, I couldn't even describe the excitement. This movie is a mix of grand musical performances from Moulin Rogue, distinct familial connection through music from August Rush, and stunning visuals from The Grand Budapest Hotel. When you combine the greatest assets from these movies, The Greatest Showman is what you get. This movie gave me a lot of chills especially from the early parts of the movie. Powerhouse casts who delivered not only great acting but powerful vocal performances. The strong belts you'll hear from here and there, and the added feeling of excitement when they express the want to be accepted, is a very wise demonstration of how beautiful diversity can be. The only thing that can top the movie is if they execute it on a live play. Dreams can build worlds, and hatred could easily destroy them. At the end of the day, the essence of peace is acceptance and contentment. We are prone to stray for searching for things we think we deserve, when all along, they've always been with us. Enjoyed watching this with Danee, Daniel, Bryle, and Ara.
