2020 is year and with it comes another promising year of films. I’m particularly excited since there are a great number of women-led films both in front of and behind the camera in 2020. Since it’s early in the year, none of the smaller, independent films are really known until the Sundance Film Festival later this month, so this list will mainly be bigger films.

Mary Poppins Returns manages to recapture the magic and wonder of the first film.

The Greatest Showman revolves around the life of P.T. Barnum – a typical rags to riches story but one that celebrates diversity and creativity.

As many people know, P.T. Barnmum is a very controversial figure and this movie did not delve into that side of him, instead they focused more on how he chased after what many people considered “crazy” ideas and brought together different types of people. This film also has incredible songs and I couldn’t help but enjoy and be impressed by the song and dance numbers.
