    I went to the Minskoff Theatre in New York City expecting to be very bored. I had never been to a Broadway play, and The Lion King probably wouldn’t have been my first pick if left up to me, but my wife had wanted to see it since she was a little girl.

    My opinion about the musical rent is that it is a okay movie. I personally think the people saying they was not going to pay the rent and setting paper and stuff on fire was a little bit to much. This movie shows you how rude and cruel people can be.One of my favorite parts is when the boy named Angel take his time to help the poor man. It show people who are going through some of the same things that people still go through to this day which i think is kinda good so people know that it is not…

    Regarding the methodology, I chose this film to analyze because there is something deeper than just the surface problems of the characters. I first watched the movie when I was about 10-11 years old with my older brother, but I never really understood the significance behind it, until I was about 17.
