West Side Story (12A)

Steven Spielberg’s reimagining of the beloved musical explores young love and tensions between two rival gangs on the streets of 1957 New York.

On the tough streets of the upper west side of New York City, two gangs—the Jets and the Sharks—battle for control of the turf. The situation becomes complicated when Tony (Ansel Elgort), a gang member, falls in love with Maria (Rachel Zegler), a rival’s sister.

Actors renowned in theatre and film and a host of talented singers and dancers join Steven Spielberg in bringing a new adaptation of the original and hugely popular stage musical West Side Story to the big screen.
