This musical tells the story of how P.T. Barnham (Hugh Jackman) rose from nothing to build what became known as the “greatest show on earth.” As a story of his life and of the people who became a part of his show, it is rather shallow; one doesn’t get a lot of depth, and I was not sure exactly how much of it was real and how much was “inspired.” As a musical, some of the numbers were good, particularly “This is Me” and “Rewrite the Stars,” but the choreography overall was not particularly dazzling. Performances, especially that by Hugh Jackman, were good, although I thought Michelle Williams was not particularly well cast. I give this a modest thumbs-up; it is entertaining in parts, but the film doesn’t inspire the same sense of wonder and fun as La La Land or Chicago. You can wait to stream this one.
