In the Heights (2021)

Dir. Jon M. Chu | PG-13 | Musical, Romance, Drama

In the Heights weaves the stories of a number of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City. At the center is Usnavi who dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Nina, a childhood friend of Usnavi, has returned to the neighborhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents. First a Broadway Musical, In the Heights’s movie release was highly criticized for whitening Washington Heights.
