We just got home from watching The Greatest Showman (Click title to see trailer). I’m just going to say it. I loved the movie. So many life-infusing themes woven into one story . . . besides the fact that they made my writer’s heart happy, they uplifted me at the deepest levels.
There are so many different themes that resonated with me, but the one that hummed the deepest parts of me was P. T. Barnum’s journey to understand the essence of his identity.
I’ll begin by saying this is Hollywood’s rendition of P. T. Barnum’s rise to fame. That said . . .
Phineas T. Barnum comes from a poor background. He holds certain beliefs based on things that happened when he was a boy.
