"Hamilton" is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and show tunes, "Hamilton" has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theater--a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. Captured at the Richard Rodgers Theater on Broadway in June 2016, the film transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way.

Speechless! Stupefied! Brilliant!
10/10
I somehow stayed on the outskirts of all the hype when this came out - mostly because you couldn't hope to get a ticket to see the original cast. I love LMM and his style and figured this would be amazing, but I didn't even try to listen to the soundtrack - it felt like it would be an incomplete experience without also seeing it. So I let it go. Until yesterday. This was like me walking into the theater in 2016 with no knowledge except that I heard it was great and something about "my shot"... MY GOD. I was stupefied. Enthralled. Enchanted. Entertained. Riveted from beginning to end (and it's not short). I laughed, I cried, I grooved, I sang. I marveled at the choreography and staging. I've watched it twice in 24 hours and bought the soundtrack (I'm so glad I waited to see it first- I feel so LUCKY to have seen it!). It's brilliant. A work of genius, truly.

Amazing- Parents Should Know...
10/10
The most in demand musical is now streaming on demand. Hamilton follows the founding of the United States through the War of Independence and foundational historical events up to 1804 through the perspective of Alexander Hamilton. The musical really packs a musical punch, there's really no dialogue outside of the songs and they combine your typical broadway music with rap, hip-hop, and jazz. Although the musical is about events that are centuries old, it's incredibly relevant to today. Lin-Manuel Miranda says "This is a story about America then, told by America now." An engaging powerhouse of a musical that really dives in to the human experience in an incredible and educational way. Like many other broadway musicals, it deals with hard life issues and is not appropriate for younger viewers. Parents should be aware that the film earns the PG-13 rating mostly through cursing and sexual innuendo. We've got a full review, discussion guide, and more up on our blog now at Down the Hobbit Hole Blog dot com. It's really amazing how they managed to capture the live performances and bring it to the screen.

A groundbreaking phenomenon.
10/10
"Hamilton" takes a giant leap from stage to screen and couldn't be more sensational, outstanding and groundbreaking. . In this broadway musical, it tells the life story of one of America's founding fathers and first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Captured live on Broadway from the Richard Rodgers Theater with the original Broadway cast. . Having never seen the broadway production, this screen adaptation made me feel like I was right there. Lin-Manuel Miranda is the definition of creative genius. The book, the music, the rhymes and a great story; how does he do it all? Everyone in the supporting cast is exceptional as well and the screen direction from Thomas Kail is jaw dropping. When speaking about how "Hamilton" is a pop-culture phenomenon; how can it not be? The hype is real, people. Here are actors of colour playing the white-ass founding fathers. Right there, ballsy. The music is whole other thing that I'll be listening to for the next six months. The entire "Hamilton" experience is a must-see - it left me floored and I would love to see it live eventually. . Follow @snobmedia for all reviews!
