One of the modernizations of Romeo and Juliet that actually works really well for me. This is mostly due to a great soundtrack and beautiful production design.

West Side Story is one of classic films that has eluded me most of my life ( or vice versa) until now. It’s the film adaptation of the Broadway Musical, which is a modern version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Instead of rival families we have rival gangs in New York City-The Jets and The Sharks. In the middle of this gang war are Tony and Maria, who just met a dance. They aren’t supposed to be together because of their association with the two gangs. It a beautiful movie. See it.
