Seasons of Love

While the stage production has its own charms and appeal, I gotta say I may have liked the movie better. Same as with Phantom of the Opera, you can see so much more with film than on stage and they can tell so many more stories in the same time. I laughed, I cried, I sang along. I loved RENT on stage, I love it on film. The characters were excellent - they sang at the right times and spoke "normally" at the right times. The film doesn't take away from the heart of the musical but instead capitalizes on the message of friendship, love, pain and death.

Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other road, no other way. No day but today.
