FTR: LB loved this. Thought it was funny as hell. So what if it’s one more slot created for newbies being snatched away by a seasoned pro. Right? Right?
I have finished and emailed all of “Larry Brody’s Personal Feedback” to all PEOPLE’S PILOT 2017 entrants!
The Feedback aspect of the PEOPLE’S PILOT is, I believe, one of its most important benefits. Where else are y’all going to see the accumulated reactions of Industry pros to your work before you join the ranks of said pros?

December 20, 2017, Twentieth Century Fox released the The Greatest Showman, a rare foray into the movie musical genre (even after the success of a certain little film called LaLa Land. The Greatest Showman tells the tale of P.T Barnum, celebrates the birth of show business and the visionary man who brought the curious to life.
I was truly impressed by the original songs written by Justin Paul and Beji Pasek. The music in this films is represented of today and can easily play on pop radio. It makes you want to get up and dance. My favorite number is This is Me performed the Keala Settle. This song recently won the Golden Globe for best original song. It is about accepting, loving yourself, and that you are worthy of love in return. The scene in which this song is performed is powerful to watch.
Hugh Jackman performance as P.T. Barnum is superb. He not only acts, he sings and dances. He truly amazed me in this role. I’m glad others can see how talented he is.
I did enjoy the love story between Philip Carlyle (Zac Efron) and Anne Wheeler (Zendaya). The interracial relationship during this time period was difficult but this doesn’t affect the couple as they manage to come together in the end.
Lets chat about the script, it was definately entertaining story. A tales the masses will love since its doing so well at the box office.
I was disappointed that the film neglects to show the relationship P.T. Barnum had with James A. Bailey and how they teamed up.
If you’re a fan of the movie musical and pure fun then this film is for you.
