Just wondering. I never saw the show. I had the impression it was supposed to have been powerful and authentic. Of course, that was before Dear Evan Hansen.
This film seemed like very nice, somewhat sanitized, with very little attention to any real problems like bullying or attention to racial or ethnic sensitivities, and I was confused about whether there was any real teensge sexual longing. It seemed the kids were a little neutered. It was fine, but I had a different impression of it from what I’d read.
Also—-were any of these kids the original cast members? How did they stack up?
