West Side Story, dir. Steven Spielberg
With it being somewhat of a tradition for a musical film to be released around Christmas (La La Land, The Greatest Showman), we can expect Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the 1957 musical to set the world alight.
So, what’s it about?
Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the film explores forbidden love and rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs from different ethnic backgrounds in the Upper West Side neighbourhood in New York City.
West Side Story is set to be released in UK cinemas on 18 Dec.
