Movie Review – In the Heights

Director: Jon Chu Starring: Anthony Ramos, Melissa Barrera, Olga Merediz Leslie Grace, Corey Hawkins, Gregory Diaz, Jimmy Smits Year: 2021 In the Heights is a bad play made into a bad movie, and early opinions otherwise have a very strong Emperor’s-New-Clothes smell about them.  Lin-Manuel Miranda created Heights early in his career, and it won
