The Greatest Showman (PG)

Hugh Jackman dazzles in this enchanting musical inspired by the life and imagination of PT Barnum, the man who rose from nothing to create show business. 

PT Barnum lives an ordinary life. Working in a mundane job, he provides modestly for his family. But the company goes bust, and he's left jobless. With nothing left to lose, he throws himself into his dream and creating the life he's always promised his loved ones.

A man with a vision, he decides to put on a show. But for a unique show, he’ll need unique performers unafraid to stand out – no-one ever made a difference by being like everyone else. 

With a star-studded supporting cast including Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and Zendaya, this soaring musical feature songs by the Academy Award-winning songwriters behind La La Land.
