You’re either along for the ride with the ending or you’re not. I still think Carey Mulligan should’ve won the Oscar for her role as Cassie. Kudos to the movie for buying Bo Burnham stock before his Netflix special. That casting decision only looks better in hindsight.
Lin-Manuel Miranda loves Washington Heights more than you love anything in your life. In the Heights crackles with life and love and paciencia y fe. The music is absolutely incredible. You’ll surely be listening to the soundtrack on Spotify for at least a week after the credits roll. My heart was bursting with Dominican pride after every inside joke and my feet were tapping along to every Latin music beat. This is a must watch.
