Movie Review: West Side Story (2021)

West Side Story 2021 might just be a perfect film. This is no mean feat considering the stunning stage musical as well as the equally perfect big screen adaptation from 1961. The new version proves equal to the challenge of adapting the beloved property, as 60 years after Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins delivered their…
