West Side Story (Re: 2011) Cert. PG Picture house at FACT

  • Released1961
  • Running time151 minutes
  • DirectorJerome Robbins
  • CastNatalie Wood, George Chakiris, Richard Beymer

The lovely Natalie Wood stars in the heartbreaking role of Maria in this magnificent film of star-crossed lovers, Latin-American tensions and steamy city life.

Young Puerto Rican seamstress Maria stumbles into the arms of all-American Tony at a dance; his gang and her family don’t like it, but the pair are in love and make a secret commitment to run away from the trouble and be together, somewhere, somehow.

Before their dream of escape can be realised, however, a rumble takes place and Tony stabs Maria's brother, and tragedy ensues. It's Romeo and Juliet retold and a modern musical classic, with some electrifying, athletic dance sequences and a marvellous Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim score.

One of the few musicals to win the Best Picture Oscar, WEST SIDE STORY remains a thrilling experience, especially when viewed on the big screen newly restored.
