West side story DVD the original cast
Makes me cry everytime I watch it. Even my husband enjoyed it and he hates musicals. It is still relevant after all these years. It is a modern day Romeo and Juliet.

West Side Story (1998, DVD)
This movie was filmed in New York City at a time when things where very different and did a masterful job of capturing the changes that where going on at that time. West Side Story is considered a classical love story but also won of the best musical and dance motion pictures ever made.<br>For me it brings me back to my child hood growing up in the South Bronx with my family and friends.

When You're a Classic, You're a Classic All the Way
I would imagine only younger people, ages 35 and below, perhaps, would not have, at least, heard of West Side Story. It is the timeless story of Romeo and Juliet, but the names and setting are changed to New York City in the fifties. Moreover, it is set to Leonard Bernstein's memorable musical score accompanied by great choreography and acting.<br><br>The story pits two ethnic gangs against each other. The Jets and the Sharks; the whites and the Puerto Rican immigrants; the two groups despise each other as did the Capulets and Montagues. As a teacher, I use this film as an example of literary interpretation and also help underscore the mindless tragedy of gang violence and hate.<br><br>Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story are both classics in their own right. You will not be disappointed.
