In the Heights

In the Heights ★★★½

“We had to assert our dignity in small ways.”

That’s Abuela Claudio (Olga Merediz), the neighborhood matriarch of In the Heights, talking about the immigrant experience in America. The movie, an adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s pre-Hamilton stage musical, asserts dignity in BIG ways.
