Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins’ Academy Award winning musical film, West Side Story, is a modern take on Shakespeare’s classic doomed love story, Romeo and Juliet. But instead of the Montagues and Capulets, there are The Jets and The Sharks! The Jets, a white gang on New York’s explosive West Side, is getting ready to fight the rival Puerto Rican gang, the Sharks. Riff, the leader of the Jets, tries to enlist the help of the co-founder of the gang, Tony – but Tony has quit to work an honest job, and he goes along only to keep the peace. At the neighbourhood dance where the gangs meet to arrange the rumble, Tony meets and falls in love†with Maria, later learning that she is the sister of Bernardo, leader of the Sharks. At the rumble, Tony tries to limit the weapons to fists, but the fighting gets out of control and the warring clans’ feud takes a tragic turn.
