Finding quality, appropriate movies can be a challenge, but Mr. Handsome and I love having movie nights, so we look long and hard to find good ones. A few months ago, we watched The Greatest Showman for the first time and loved it. For those who haven’t seen it, the movie tells the story of P.T. Barnum and the Barnum and Bailey Circus. The circus ran for 146 years, from 1871 until 2017, and was advertised as The Greatest Show on Earth.Some of our friends invited us to their house to watch a movie last Sunday evening, and we introduced them to The Greatest Showman. One of them admitted that he isn’t a fan of musicals or movies that tell heartwarming stories, so we were concerned about what he would think, but he ended up thoroughly enjoying it.
The best part of the movie is the music, which is extremely catchy and upbeat. We made our homemade apple butter (be sure to take a look at my apple butter tutorial) this weekend, which has become an annual traditional, and enjoyed listening to the soundtrack while we worked. The Greatest Showman is rated PG, but I recommend pre-screening it before showing it to younger children.
Have you seen The Greatest Showman?
