The Classic West Side Story Broadway Musical Reimagined
West Side Story is now available for streaming, and you can pre-order it on 4K Ultra HD before the musical’s March 15th release.
The new version directed by Steven Spielberg has a modern feel to it, but the film feels true in spirit to the original.
The story is set in New York in 1957, which in some ways is a long, long time ago.
However, it is still relevant today and in some ways seems even more relevant.
I enjoyed the original movie, when I saw it as a child.
Seeing this new version in 2022 gives fresh perspective on age old issues.
And, yes, the music and dancing are fantastic, so we can enjoy the entertainment while reflecting on the power of love and the societal ills that still plague us.
