I young boy who came from nothing, decided to make the best of his life and make all his dreams come true, and give the life he promised to his beloved and his two girls. The way he does it is quite unconventional at the time, as he opens his own circus with people who are mocked for their strangeness. He finds himself distant from what really matters, only to find himself back when it is most important!
Les Misérables and its stupid sound stage and fish-eyed lens...). The scene where Barnum convinces Carlyle to join him? That dance scene in the bar was fantastic.
Until the next item on my list!
