About this movie

The creator of “Hamilton” and the director of “Crazy Rich Asians” invite you to a cinematic event, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big. Lights up on Washington Heights. The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tightknit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life. “In the Heights” fuses Lin‐Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

Saw it at the movies. Frenetic and painful. Songs were about the most mundane and stupid things... and then repeating the same line...not worth remembering. It honestly felt like a grade 9 essay story. They definitely could have done a better job with what they were trying to honour.

My favourite movie of all time, hands down. Usually I don't like musicals but this one really is such a feel good movie

Love this movie, sad about some of the character and song cuts that happened adapting it from Broadway, but still amazing
