In the Heights takes place in Washington Heights, a Latino neighborhood in New York. It centers on its residents, all who have their own stories to tell and dreams they want to achieve. The film also highlights how these people come together to celebrate their success and mourn their defeats.
The film is based on the original musical by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda. It features music that combines Latin rhythms and dance with hip-hop lyrics about chasing one’s dreams while clinging to their roots. Starring in the film are Anthony Ramos, Corey Hawkins, Leslie Grace, Gregory Diaz, Marc Anthony, and more.
