I agree "I feel Pretty" placement is a little odd. Although at that time, she does not know what has transpired. But it might have done better earlier.

I felt chemistry between Maria and Tony. Of course, it is all about "love at first sight" and kept apart by feuding dynamics in their lives. Not families as in Romeo and Juliet but gangs... But I did like they tried to show more to their relationship.

I like Cool. It made it all more threatening to what was happening with Riff and Tony fighting over the gang. Although why Tony just did not throw the gun in the water because he's trying to prevent the escalation, and so he had the choice. That is the loophole by doing it that way, but I felt it heightened everything.

^ Bernardo 18 years old, Anita 21 years old.

I'm going to be brutally honest here and say that there's NO way that David Alvarez or Ariana DeBose looked age-appropriate for these roles.

That's the irony of this movie. We keep hearing how it's such an ~improvement~ over the 60's version but what they really mean is that it's more ethnically diverse.

Nobody thinks about the fact that these characters are not your average street gangs in their mid-20s. They're teenagers.


Also, does anyone else think it was completely weird and unnecessary that Tony Kushner gave Tony and Graziella a backstory? As if he was trying to take the attention away from Riff or something & make Tony more appealing.

Did she have a favorite actor/character?

My family always loved Natalie Wood and Russ Tamblyn.

Understandable

I liked Rita a lot as Anita. I'm just not keen on how she speaks of the movie in interviews.

Well it's not a spoiler that Riff and Graziella are romantically involved (if you've seen the 60s version) but the 2021 movie doesn't premiere on Disney+ until March, so this clip of the Jets in the opening scene will have to go under tags (feel free to look and comment ):

I loved the Irish touches to Riff's wardrobe, jewellery and overall appearance in the 2021 movie. Mike looked appropriately gritty, emaciated and simply natural as a 1950's cocky street gang leader:

Thanks Jen

I don't have Disney+ but happy for people who can finally see it (and on HBO Max)

The movie's out to stream in 2 days and it's already been leaked in HD so we may as well stop using tags now

Clip from the movie of the Jets Song ~
