Film title

West Side Story


Synopsis

The tragic love story of 'Romeo and Juliet', reimagined for 1950s New York. Originally a Broadway play, 'West Side Story' was later adapted for film and sets the scene for the star-crossed lovers in the city streets where bitter gang warfare rages between the Jets and the Sharks. Caught up in the struggle are Tony and Maria, who fall in love despite coming from opposite sides of the conflict. The themes are as relevant now as in the '50s - street crime, tensions around immigration, the American dream - and some amazing songs and dance routines make this a dazzling spectacle.

Contains mild violence, racist terms and one use of moderate bad language
