I watched In the Heights what feels like forever and a half ago, in 2007, on its off-Broadway run. I remember it as a memorable, if slightly baffling experience. I wasn’t used to seeing myself on any kind of property, and it was both immensely gratifying and somewhat hard to process. Why did I feel like I know these characters? Why did they feel less like characters and more like people I knew?
Never let anyone tell you representation doesn’t matter.
And today we got a little glimpse of what this movie is going to be about with the release of seven different posters and we’re just …having a hard time deciding which one we love more, that’s how much we love them all.
So check out the posters below and tell you what you’re most looking forward to seeing from the movie:
In the Heights is set to release June 18, 2021.
