Read my spoiler-free movie review of In the Heights (2021).
Directed by Jon M. Chu, In The Heights is a musical about a bodega owner’s mixed feelings about closing his store to retire to the Dominican Republic.
Key cast includes Lin-Manuel Miranda, Dascha Polanco, Corey Hawkins…
With zero prior knowledge about the broadway show on which this movie is based, it looks as though, as much as the story is about indecision regarding retirement, it’s definitely also about gentrification.
I’m curious because it’s New York but it is also a musical – not my number one genre. I’ll at least try to watch.
Ariana Greenblatt, Stephanie Beatriz, Marc Anthony, Susan Pourfar, Melissa Barrera, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Olga Merediz, Leslie Grace, Ken Holmes and Julia Harnett also star.
In The Heights Release Dates: June 18th, 2021 (US & UK)…
Happy Film Loving
