Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his feature directorial debut with tick, tick…BOOM!, an adaptation of the autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, who revolutionized theater as the creator of Rent. The film follows Jon (Academy Award nominee and Tony Award winner Andrew Garfield), a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical. Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a make-or-break performance, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere: from his girlfriend Susan, who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York City; from his friend Michael, who has moved on from his dream to a life of financial security; amidst an artistic community being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with: What are we meant to do with the time we have?

    I finished this 10 minutes ago and I still have tears in my eyes. It's touching, it's fun, at no point does it drag, it's really just… A fantastic story of love vs fear. Highly Recommend.

    I have to add, I have not watched a musical nor did I care to, for probably 20 years. But this trailer showed heart, and it proved to be a chance worth taking for me.

    When I finally saw RENT's touring production, all the hype was unjustified. Especially amidst a huge trove of AIDS/gay-themed works in the 90s. Garfield's Under the Silver Lake is a masterpiece.

    I could really connect with Jonathan Larson. When having to balance life and work, even my inner demons. It’s a book series I’ve been working on forever, and I never gave up on it. I would really hardly, focus on my writing career instead of things that I didn’t want to do like university or college. When being in the autism spectrum, I am trying my best to keep going.

    Andrew Garfield is a charismatic chameleon-he can truly act in any role and do it effortlessly. I feel his next role should be a retelling of the life of the late Michael Hutchence- INXS. Mystify us all Andrew !

    I wish the Will Smith slap happened at a different award show, then Andrew Garfield would've won that well deserved Oscar! He was amazing in this film as the late, great Jonathan Larson!

    I watched the show the lead role is pretty talented, he loves the camera a little bit too much. How is anyone supposed to believe that any guy in this film is straight? Great music. The story is kind of typical.
