(2021) (Andrew Garfield, Alexandra Shipp) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Musical: A playwright tries to balance his various relationships with his need to write one last song for the upcoming workshop of his long-gestating, sci-fi musical.
Jon Larson (ANDREW GARFIELD) is a nearly 30-year-old playwright who's trying to put the finishing touches on his long-gestating, sci-fi musical, "Superbia." He lives in Soho with his long-time friend, Michael (ROBIN DE JESUS), who's now moving out, and is in a relationship with dancer Susan (ALEXANDRA SHIPP). But he's now under a tight deadline to write one last big song for his offering, what with Ira Weitzman (JONATHAN MARC SHERMAN) putting on a workshop of the musical with Karessa (VANESSA HUDGENS) and Roger (JOSHUA HENRY) singing the leads.
But it's uncertain if Jon's agent, Rosa Stevens (JUDITH LIGHT), has sent out any invites for the workshop and thus Jon starts calling up anyone and everyone, including legendary theater figure Stephen Sondheim (BRADLEY WHITFORD). But with the clock ticking down, the pressures Jon is facing start affecting his relationship with both Susan and Michael.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- They probably will if they're into musicals and/or are fans of anyone in the cast.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For some strong language, some suggestive material and drug references.
