In The Heights

98% on Rotten Tomatoes

“As a big, energizing summertime songfest, In the Heights delivers with verve.” – Vanity Fair

In the Heights captures the bustling, changing multicultural Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan with a dizzying array of song and dance styles, from hip-hop to Latin influences.” – USA Today

“A brash and invigorating entertainment, a movie of tender, delicate moments that nonetheless revels unabashedly in its own size and scale.’ – Los Angeles Times


In the Heights fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s (Hamilton) kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s (Crazy Rich Asians) lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

In the Heights lights up on Washington Heights… The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.
