Watch West Side Story at the cinema

(rating 12A)

A new adaptation of the beloved stage musical (and a loving tribute to its 1961 big-screen iteration) from director Steven Spielberg and Pulitzer Prize-winning screenwriter Tony Kushner, West Side Story follows two teenagers from different ethnic backgrounds who fall in love in 1950s New York City.

As their romance intensifies, they find themselves drawn into the heart of a conflict between two warring gangs.


Here’s the New York Philharmonic recording the soundtrack back in January 2020

For those of you who have Disney Plus at home, this documentary about the making of the new film is worth a watch:
