2. West Side Story

I was so torn as to which of the musical films set in New York to include – there are so many great ones to choose from. I think however, this will always be my top personal choice. Based on the world’s favourite love story, the star crossed tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is transplanted to 1950's New York and ethnic gang rivalry. Get completely drawn in to the tragic tale of Tony and Maria and be carried along on a magical musical melodrama. Sublime!
