The Greatest Showman, The Greatest Show?

Hello all!

If you read my last post you would have noticed that I have now decided to change my blog to a mix of lifestyle and beauty. I was inspired by reading other blogs and wanted to add in lifestyle as I found lots of ideas for blog posts and it got me excited about writing more.

When I thought about adding lifestyle I immediately knew the first thing I wanted to blog about. The Greatest Showman!! If you have no idea what I’m talking about then

Have you been living under a rock?!!

For those who know what I’m talking about but haven’t seen it, The Greatest Showman is a musical film based on the true story of how the circus was created by P.T Barnum.


I’d heard a lot about The Greatest Showman and wanted to see it but never got round to going to the cinema but when me and my boyfriend went to the cinema one evening at the beginning of March we discovered it to still be showing and with no persuading needed we went to watch it. From that night my life changed… I honestly fell so in love with this movie. The music, the costumes, the story, the characters! Everything in this film was incredible! What I love so much about this movie is that it isn’t your typical cheesy musical, its based on a true story, a story of the circus which I never thought would be such an interesting storyline.

Let’s not forget that Zac Efron is in a musical again!!

I was a huge fan of high school musical when I was a kid and to see Zac Efron singing and dancing again in a musical is perfection! His song with Zendaya in The Greatest Showman is just so beautiful and one of my favourite scenes in the movie!


I think my ultimate favourite scene in the movie has got to be the part where P.T Barnum is doing the auditions for his show and then they all come out on stage for the first time and are scared at what the public will think but then the children love it and everyone begins to enjoy the show. It always makes me feel a little emotional because its just so beautiful and is expressing everyone’s uniqueness. The film shows that whoever you are you are special and unique and you shouldn’t be afraid to hide it, you should share it with the world. maxresdefault.jpg

I absolutely love the soundtrack to this movie and I could honestly listen to it on repeat all day. I love every single song and love that they aren’t your usual typical cheesy musical songs. Plus everyone singing on the soundtrack can actually sing!

Well, I guess I could talk about this movie all day because I just love it so much but I should probably wrap this post up now. So, in answer to the title of my post:

The Greatest Showman, The Greatest Show?

Of course my answer is YES! If you haven’t already seen this movie then be sure to check it out! It’s out on DVD now!!
