Movie Description:
In the Heights centers on a variety of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights, on the northern tip of Manhattan. At the center of the show is Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after the aging Cuban lady next door, pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighboring beauty salon and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Nina, a childhood friend of Usnavi's, has returned to the neighborhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents, who have spent their life savings on building a better life for their daughter. Ultimately, Usnavi and the residents of the close-knit neighborhood get a dose of what it means to be home.

    Salomé Lerner just finished writing an autobiograpy. She goes to a TV show called "Apostrophes", hosted by French TV showman Bernard Pivot. Pivot then imagines a film that could be created from her gripping story. A film entirely made of music because after seeing the young pianist Erik Berchot, Salomé believes seeing her long lost brother, who was a musician as well. A brother she had lost along with her parents in 1943. However, the Lerners did in fact escape the gestapo and might have based themselves in Paris...


Not for me

I am a huge fan of Broadway musicals, and I love to watch them on stage every time I can. I had already seen an In The Heights performance, but it was an amateur one so I thought that's why I didn't like it.

But now I realize, after watching Hamilton and this movie, that my problem is that I don't like Lin Manuel Miranda's musicals in general. With Moana there was enough variety in song styles, and the non-musical parts of the movie were great.

But when I am bombarded with this style of rap combined with high pitched almost screams, in what seems to be an endless 2.5 hour song, I can't enjoy it. Add that to the fact that the story is just a series of events and characters scattered all around the place, without an actual plot, and it becomes, for me, a really boring monotonous experience.

I'm happy for the people that have enjoyed this kind of movie, because I would like to see more tries at musicals coming from Hollywood. But even being latino (mexican) myself, and having good memories from my visit to New York City, I just could not have a good time with this movie.

Shallow and Unrealistic

At an hour and a half in literally nothing has happened ... seriously nothing. None of the characters have flaws at all so they feel like plastic people. They are talented dancers and singers and I wanted to like this film but it is all style and not a single ounce of substance.

I do not understand why this has so many good reviews because when you take away the dancing and visuals there is literally no story.

Lacks focus, and the songs are too high strung

For some reason Moana kept popping to mind while watching this movie. If you've seen Moana, you might appreciate the clear narrative purpose of it's songs, their dosing and simply their composition. 'In the Heights' fails on these points though.

So this is just my opinion, but for a movie or musical, a good song has a clear message and narrative purpose. Be it to make clear a characters intent or state of mind, or to unveil a specific plot twist or something of the sorts. In 'In the Heights' however, songs jump from subject to subject; from a persons background to the situation another person finds themselves in, to romantic aspirations, to life beyond The Heights, etc. They tried to cover to much content in most songs, and it just leaves the senses overloaded.

Not helping those senses is that most songs are just too high strung; they have a constant high energy and intensity as if every line is the highlight of both the song and the movie. There is no pacing or ease, no breaks or just a moment where they shut up and give the music a moment to breathe, which makes the watching experience rather exhausting.

The acting itself is good, the story is cute, but the movie aims to be a musical and in that it just fails.
