about this film

A big-screen retelling of the classic story of forbidden love, and the rivalry between two teenage street gangs.

Tensions are growing between the Sharks, a Puerto Rican gang, and the Jets, a gang made up of “American” boys. An incident between the Jets and Shark leader, Bernardo, escalates into an all out fight…

Steven Spielberg (Schindler’s List, Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Close Encounters, Ready Player One), a legendary director whose awards include Oscars, Golden Globes and Emmys, directs Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner’s (Lincoln) screenplay adaptation of the Broadway musical by Arthur Laurents, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim.

“This film is probably the most daunting of my career. West Side Story is arguably the greatest score ever written in the theater, and that’s not lost on any of us. It’s very intimidating to take a masterpiece and make it through different eyes and different sensibilities without compromising the integrity of what is generally considered the greatest music ever written for the theater. But I believe that great stories should be told over and over again, in part to reflect different perspectives and moments in time into the work.”
– Steven Spielberg
