The directorial debut of song-mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda doesn’t catch you very fast, but it soon starts to grow on you. Andrew Garfield is having a great time playing Jonathan Larson. The songs are very very good (proof that Larson was a genius) and the movie is perfectly-paced, the support performances are good as well. Excellent musical, balanced, combining funny and sad moments perfectly.
Not sure if Andrew is going to receive a statue for his performance, but it’s definitely one of his best acting I’ve seen so far, and to be honest, I found the movie altogether more worthy of a Best Picture nomination than some others that were nominated.
