A new musical by Lin Manuel Miranda, creator of Hamilton. In Washington Heights, N.Y., the scent of warm coffee hangs in the air just outside of the 181st street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies a vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is a likable and magnetic bodega owner who hopes, imagines, and sings about a better life.
“Films that take us to the heights of delight are all too rare these days. Watching this one is like winning the lottery’s jackpot.” — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
“Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical comes to the screen as an exuberant and heartfelt party, directed by Jon M. Chu and starring Anthony Ramos.” — A.O. Scott, New York Times
