Nominated for 7 Academy Awards. A solidly entertaining remake peppered with transcendent moments, Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story emphasises the musical’s most beloved elements without trying to radically reinterpret the source material. Sixty years after the original film arrived in theatres, this remake boasts intimacy and emotion, creating a warm sense of deja vu mitigated by the story’s still-potent condemnation of bigotry and violence. To that end, there’s a greater consideration for the circumstances of the Puerto Rican characters in Spielberg’s take, and newcomer Rachel Zegler makes for a radiant Maria.
“Mr. Spielberg did not waste his time-or ours. The new West Side Story is simply fabulous.”—The Observer
“Spielberg’s “West Side Story” will go down as one of Hollywood’s best musical adaptations ever.”—San Jose Mercury News
