    Very excited for this, especially in the capable hands of LMM! Glad it will be on Netflix but also looking forward to seeing it in the cinema.

    Is it about the creator of Rent?

    It is indeed! It's an autobiographical piece about him and his creative process and finding his path/deciding to continue to pursue a career in musical theatre.

    One of the themes of it is ageing/dying (the tick tick reference is to a ticking sound of time winding down as has an existential crisis as he approaches 30...), which is especially powerful considering Jonathan Larson died suddenly at the age of 35.

    I never knew Andrew Garfield sang, it looks good very Oscar bait worth as OP said

    LMM can do no wrong

    I really enjoyed this. Garfield was excellent and Vanessa Hudgens surprised me with how pared back her performance was, I was expecting her to try and eat every scene.

    I particularly loved spotting all the cameos, and not just in the Sunday diner scene. Judy Kuhn as his mother, anyone?

    Finally got around to watching it tonight what a great job Garfield did.


    After finishing it I turned on the news to see that Stephen Sondheim had died. RIP.

    Garfield won the best actor Golden Globe for this and well deserved it is.

    Was delighted to hear this. Best performance of his career in my opinion, and a truly brilliant film. I'll admit a bias as I'm a RENT obsessive, but what a fitting way to tell the story of someone who died tragically young, through the medium he was obsessed with.

    Anything Miranda touches turns to gold at the moment! (I was at Hamilton yesterday, amazed every time).


    Anyone reading this who is on the fence, give this film a go!

    2021/2022 is Andrew Garfield's year and I'm all here for it. The Oscar will probably come down between Will Smith and Cumberbatch, but Garfield is having a cracker of a time at the moment.
