Genre: Biography, Drama and Musical
Conclusion: 3/5
I have to say that I really enjoyed this film. I am not criticizing the film but it was very much like a stage performance. I felt the film was more about a celebration of the life of Jonathan Larson. It was very slow to get started but then gradually got better as the film went on and picked up pace. This is Lin-Manuel Mianda’s first feature debut. Andrew Garfield learned how to sing for this film and he dedicated a year to try and train his voice up. I thought he was brilliant. This is his third biopic film, the others are The Social Network  (2010) and also Breathe (2017).
