One of Steven Spielberg’s best films is on Disney+. It’s an ingenious reinvention of a classic that, unfortunately, flopped at the box office.
Over a career spanning more than 60 years, Steven Spielberg has excelled in a wide variety of genres, from science fiction blockbusters to fantasy adventures and historical dramas. At least almost. He only managed to cross one genre off his bucket list two years ago: musicals.
Spielberg always wanted to make a big movie musical. He made this dream come true with Love, Sublime Love. He tried for years to bring his passion project to the big screen. However, when the time finally came, the public disappointed him. His remake of the classic musical was a box office failure.
A thrilling masterpiece on Disney+: Steven Spielberg’s brilliant remake of Love, Sublime Love
Love, Sublime Love takes us back to 1950s New York, where two rival gangs fight for the Upper West Side. The Sharks, immigrants from Puerto Rico, meet the Jets – and an unlikely love story develops between them. María (Rachel Zegler), sister of the leader of the Sharks, Bernardo (David Alvarez), falls in love with Tony (Ansel Elgort), who belongs to the Jets, who are in a situation of rebellion.
Love, Sublime Love is a timeless classic musical that was masterfully adapted for film by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins in 1961. Spielberg does everything in his version and delivers one of the best films of his entire career. 2021’s Love, Sublime Love is an exhilarating frenzy of color and movement that will leave you breathless for two and a half hours.
The film is led by the magnificent Rachel Zegler, who can currently be seen in the new film The Hunger Games: A Song of Birds and Snakes. Amor, Sublime Amor is also full of acting discoveries. Ariana DeBose, in particular, as Anita, Bernardo’s fearless girlfriend, and Mike Faist, as the tough and vulnerable Jets leader Riff, will be hard to get out of your head.
100 million dollars were at stake: Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story was a failure at the cinema
Despite all the talent in front of and behind the camera, Spielberg’s Love, Sublime Love was a movie failure. With a budget of 100 million dollars, the film only made 76 million US dollars worldwide. This is particularly painful for a film made with so much passion. If you haven’t watched Love, Sublime Love yet, you can now watch this wonderful film streaming on Disney+.
