    The story is set in 1950s New York City – loosely adapted from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet – with one girl named Maria caught between two gangs – the Jets and the Sharks.

    Her brother Bernardo (David Alvarez) is the leader of the Latinx gang the Sharks, though she has fallen for Tony (Ansel Elgort), a member of the white gang, the Jets.

    Frequent Spielberg collaborator Tony Kushner (Munich, Lincoln) wrote the screenplay, adapted from the iconic stage musical.
