In the Heights


Just finished watched this. My thoughts: spectacularly directed by Jon M. Chu, this adaption of the Broadway musical is about the lives and dreams of a group of people in the neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City. The film features a wonderful cast and is brimming with enthusiasm, energy and life. In The Heights is an exuberant blast and I really enjoyed all the lively song and dance numbers. The film looks great and is a joyful experience celebrating community, dreams and life itself. I expect this to be a major Oscar contender. One of the best films of the year and a must see movie event that will make you want to sing and dance! My rating is a
