In the Heights – Trailer 1 – Lin-Manuel Miranda

In the Heights In the Heights comes from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the man who single-handedly ruined Mary Poppins Returns, and I can’t wait to miss it!

The film is a musical which centres on a variety of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights, on the northern tip of Manhattan. At the center of the show is Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), a bodega owner who looks after the aging Cuban lady next door, pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighbouring beauty salon, and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic.

Meanwhile, Nina (Leslie Grace), a childhood friend of Usnavi’s, has returned to the neighbourhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents, who have spent their life savings on building a better life for their daughter. Ultimately, Usnavi and the residents of the close-knit neighbourhood get a dose of what it means to be home.

In The Heights reaches the low point of all cinema and comes to the UK on August 7th.
