Synopsis


Rent
This film adaptation of the Broadway musical based loosely on Puccini's opera La Bohème features many members of the original cast. It follows a year in the lives of seven friends living the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle in New York's East Village. AIDS and both its physical and emotional complications pervade the lives of Roger (Adam Pascal), Mimi (Rosario Dawson), Tom (Jesse L. Martin), and Angel (Wilson Jermaine Heredia); Maureen (Idina Menzel) deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne (Tracie Thoms), wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble; Benjamin (Taye Diggs) has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends; and Mark (Anthony Rapp), an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general, always behind the camera recording the events but never playing a part. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

    I had always heard of RENT and wished I could see it on Broadway. I absolutely fell in love with this movie. The music is incredible and the actors are great. Of course, all but 2 are from the original Broadway cast. I recently got to see the stage show and was pleasantly surprised to see that Christopher Columbus stayed so true to the play. I have to say that I miss Mimi singing "Goodbye My Love" in the movie, but am glad can still see it on the deleted scenes. That part made me cry in the play. I wish it would have stayed in the movie. But other than that....this movie rocks!!

    I can watch this movie over and over again. I had the DVD and now I bought the blue-ray version after I purchased a blue-ray player. One of the greatest movies ever.

    This is a great musical. The cast is great. The music is catchy and fun. Plus it has shows why the saying "No day but today" means so much.
