"West Side Story" still thrills us 40 years later both a musical and a commentary of the human spirit. Director Robert Wise has adapted the Shakespeare play "Romeo and Juliet" and place it in early 1960's New York city, where gang fights were a norm.
The Jets and the Sharks are battling each other for turf control for quite some time and if you read the play, you know what's going on. Forbidden love will bloom between two different people that will be the difference in the movie.
"West Side Story" won ten academy awards and the film has still carrys a powerful message of love and death today.
One of the best movies ever made! The music is wonderful and the dancing is fantastic. A true classic love story.
