About “West Side Story”

Set in New York City in 1957, the movie tells the story of Tony and Maria, who experience love at first sight at their high school dance. This is more than a story of two star-crossed lovers, though. Tony is white and Maria is Puerto Rican and their blossoming romance leads to high tension between rival gangs, the Jets and Sharks, who are both fighting to take over the streets.

“West Side Story” stars Ansel Elgort (Tony), Academy Award nominee Ariana DeBose (Anita), David Alvarez (Bernardo), Mike Faist (Riff), Brian d’Arcy James (Officer Krupke), Corey Stoll (Lieutenant Schrank), Josh Andrés Rivera (Chino), EGOT winner Rita Moreno (Valentina), and Rachel Zegler (Maria).

“Something's Coming: West Side Story–A Special Edition of 20/20” is also available to stream on Disney+ now. Spielberg’s adaptation of “West Side Story” is the second big screen adaptation of the 1957 stage musical by the same name.

Filmen ‘West Side Story’ er baseret på Broadway-musicalen af samme navn fra 1957. Som i den originale musical-opsætning handler denne nye filmversion også om forbudt kærlighed og farlig rivalisering mellem de to bander the Jets og the Sharks.
Det er dog ikke første gang, at musicalen er blevet genskabt som film, for i 1961 blev det til en yderst succesrig, Oscar-vindende version af Jerome Robbins og Robert Wise.
Den både musikalske og romantiske fortælling blev i sin originale Broadway-form nomineret til hele seks Tony-priser, mens filmatiseringen fra 1961 modtog intet mindre end 11 Oscar-nomineringer, hvoraf den vandt hele 10 statuetter, herunder for Bedste film.
