Nominated for seven Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director! Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the 1957 musical, West Side Story. Love at first sight strikes when young Tony spots Maria at a high school dance in 1957 New York City. Their burgeoning romance helps to fuel the fire between the warring Jets and Sharks — two rival gangs vying for control of the streets.
“Steven Spielberg rediscovers the breathing, troubling essence of a classic, building a bold and current screen musical… It’s a dazzling display of filmmaking craft that also feels raw, unsettled and alive.” — A.O. Scott, New York Times
“Spielberg’s West Side Story is a charismatic showcase for everything he does best on the big screen, and a genuinely thoughtful update, making gentle and incisive rearrangements to justify its brassy sashay back into cinemas.” — David Sims, The Atlantic
“Thrilling, romantic, drenched in movement, life, and color.” — Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
