FILM: In The Heights ( PG)
October 8 @ 18:30pm - 20:50pm£4 – £6
In Washington Heights, N.Y., the scent of warm coffee hangs in the air just outside of the 181st St. 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.
“In the Heights is the sort of film it would be very easy to be cynical about. The all-singing, all-dancing big screen adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes’ hit Broadway musical is certainly not the edgiest film you’ll see this year, and many viewers will likely find themselves rolling their eyes through much of its runtime. And yet there’s something about the film that makes it almost impossible to resist – an immersive, hopeful experience full of energy and colour and life.” Radio Times
