There’s been very few new movie releases over the past year due to COVID-19, but nature is healing and there’s major hope that we can slowly start getting back to a few normal things; like going to the cinema.
It looks like the first big movie eyeing up a release for summer 2021 is In The Heights. The movie was supposed to be released in 2020, but we all know how that turned out.
In The Heights is from the same creator as Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, so you know it’s going to be goooood! In The Heights also started off as a broadway musical, so expect uplifting songs galore – basically just what we need after the past year!
What’ s In The Heights About?
Jon M Chu’s film (director of Crazy Rich Asians), based on Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes’s musical of the same name, tells the story of a Hispanic-American community threatened by gentrification.
“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 tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi, who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.”
The film stars Anthony Ramos (who also starred in Hamilton), Leslie Grace, Dascha Polanco, Stephanie Beatriz, Corey Hawkins, Melissa Barrera and more, with Lin-Manuel Miranda also appearing as Piragüero.
