In The Heights (2021)

If you're familiar with Broadway musicals, this one is also made by the genius behind Hamilton - actually, this was made way back in the mid-2000s by Lin Manuel-Miranda. The movie adaptation did not disappoint at all! Jon M. Chu (The same director of Crazy Rich Asians) really interpreted the show well by incorporating a new perspective to the existing idea of the show.

My favorite part is the showstopper Paciencia y Fe performed by Olga Merediz who played the original role of Abuela Claudia when In The Heights opened on Broadway. She was the perfect fit for the role and I'm so glad they got her to reprise it in the movie adaptation. She still can belt the song and it was given a whole new refreshing look with Chu's visual feast for the song - I literally cried.

This isn't your typical jukebox musical movie *cough* The Greatest Showman *cough*, this is a legit musical movie that incorporated the songs into its core to create a seamless story from start to finish.

Overall, the movie adaptation gave justice to the original source material and improved further!
