I just watched this trailer for "The Greatest Showman," a film about P.T. Barnum that stars Hugh Jackman in the title role:


Trailer!


I remember watching a documentary or two about Barnum as a youngster, and have some fascination with the history of his sideshows. This film seems to be very loose with things, from what I can tell.

I hated the music it was so distracting. I don't think I'd go to the movies to see it. But when it's on cable I'll check it out.

I'd be much more interested if it were more factual.

Hollywood has forgotten the roman clef. If the desire is to tell a hugely exaggerated story, or twist the story to fit Mr. Director's "vision", then do it with invented characters, instead of confusing history.*
