Why do we not have a thread for one of the best films of the year? Obsessed with this (and the soundtrack) since I saw it last week.
Rest In Peace Lilly!

It started off slow in the USA, but it is coming a hit due to good word of mouth.

My friends have said that it's an okay movie, but that the music is excellent.

Just saw this. Brilliant movie with very strong performances. I like that it was very fast paced as well, didn’t drag on too much.

Just came back from seeing this, I'm not a musicals fan usually but I really enjoyed this! Pacey, fab acting and scenery and some of the songs were great - the touring singer's voice was incredible! Heart-warming ending too.

this movie was cute but what's really great is the soundtrack
Dua Lipa - Rihanna - Kanye West - Madonna - Michael Jackson

I really want to see this again. Once was not enough. I’ve been playing the soundtrack constantly for the last 3 weeks and it still sounds incredible.

Saw this today and it's the best thing I've seen in ages. Every song was so bang on the money, like Mike said, Loren Allred's voice was outrageous, I was trying to hide the fact I had tears during that song, it was a real moment. I went straight out and bought the soundtrack on the way home. This was everything that La La Land wasn't.

This is still going strong at the box office, even after being out for 3 and a half months. Incredible.

It could potentially overtake Grease. I didn’t realise how great B&TB did at the Box Office.
