West Side Story ★★★½

Epic storytelling, but so often ripped off that it's almost cliché. Powerful and still very relevant ending, underscoring a message we all need to hear and hopefully try to understand. All of the singing and dancing made it hard for me to feel any menance from the opposing gangs, although that is part of this movies charm. It's hard to say anything negative about this much loved classic without envisioning angering the trolls so I'll leave it at that.
