“Heartfelt and heart-breaking, this feels like Spielberg has made an adaptation faithful to its roots but also, always, alive to the modern world.”~Helen O'Hara, Empire

Aroview: Steven Spielberg's dazzling adaptation of the 1957 musical, an American fairy tale of doomed love and the rivalry between Puerto Rican and white street gangs in Manhattan's Upper West Side.

With a screenplay by Tony Kushner (ANGELS IN AMERICA), the production achieves a timeless quality, mostly sticking to old-school musical showmanship but with a few contemporary touches.
