The musical is nowadays considered a classic, but it's also been criticised for its portrayal of Puerto Ricans and for casting white actors in brown-face makeup instead of actual Latinx performers.60 years later, West Side Story is back, this time directed by Stephen Speilberg with new lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, a new book by Tony Kushner and Executive Produced by and starring Rita Moreno in a new role as the motherly Valentina.The remake is being celebrated for its more positive portrayal of minorities, but some folks are still stung by the racist legacy of the original work and would rather see new films created for and by Puerto Rican people.Today we take a look at Stephen Speilberg's remake of West Side Story, what changes they made, why the box office numbers are low and why you will love it!Plus,➤ The new Sex and the City series' first episode has a Big ending.➤ Interview a Vampire novelist Anne Rice dies at the age of 80.Episode #3002
