This movie contains a rich plot and an amazingly accurate representation of the often misrepresented Washington Heights neighborhood the story takes place in. Trouble In The Heights features captivating dialogue that would rise the envy of any major budget feature film. It has scene stealing performances from seasoned actors like Raúl Esparza, Luis Antonio Ramos, and Olga Merediz. It also has some refreshing performances from new comers Rayniel Rufino, Antonio Ortiz, and Alexandra Metz. Also a very strong supporting performance from John Rafael Peralta. The confrontation between the movies protagonist and antagonist is really one of the best scenes i've seen in recent memory. A testament to great actors delivering on great script under the direction of Jonathan Ullman. Overall this is a gem of a movie that personifies the magic independent filmmaking.
