What a beautiful movie. This is an uplifting show with a fabulous story lovingly adapted for the screen. The casting is spot on but what makes this movie work is the cinematography, the joie de vivre of the dancing and the color and light that infuses every scene. I'm impressed at how they took a sung through musical, added back story and it works beautifully. When the Producers was taken from stage to screen the heart and soul was ripped out and tue result was a mess. In the Heights found a new depth of heart and soul and the result is a rousing success. The only thing that kept me rating it a 10 was the editing. So many scenes I wanted to see more but the dancing sequences are quick cut happy and a bit distracting. Loved the Busby Berkeley numbers! Anthony Ramos, Corey Hawkins and Daphne Rubin Vega are gods. Leslie Grace is an amazing find and Melissa Barrera has an amazing voice. And someone please make Dascha Polanco a star!! Such amazing screen presence.
