Overview

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.

This is the best musical I've ever seen. It's gritty and real yet has a touch of humor,sweetness,and even sadness to it. RENT is stirring,touching and very liberal. It has the overall message of hope,love,compassion,equality. No day but today.

This is an incredible adaptation of the Tony award-winning broadway musical. The poignant masterpiece is directed by Chris Columbus (who also did Mrs. Doubtfire and the first two Harry Potter movies), and I must say he did a fantastic job! Rent's cast gives a notable performance that will stay in the audience's hearts forever. A fine film with love and loss, Rent is a tremendous success. Highly reccommended.

I did not care for this musical at all. The subject matter was probably more off-putting than the music. It was extremely dark and depresing. Not what I generally look for in entertainment.
Guest More than 1 year ago
The music is GREAT, the story line is wonderful but the two together is utter chaos. It makes the movie senseless and almost seems to mock the issue on the movie. If it were a movie without the music, I would love it or if it were just the music in and of itself, it would be great...but the two together make for an awkward combination. But I can see why it would appeal to some people.

if you are like me and know everyword of R.E.N.T. it was weird hearing it spoken with out certain musical arrangements and what-not..so it took me like a good 20-25 minutes to get into the movie but once you get past that you see this brilliantly-witty and amazing movie that's not just for the homosexual community , but for all humanity. the entire word should see this film and i bet the most closed minded of people will...be singing the songs..one word..AMAZING!

I saw Rent on Broadway in 2004 and thought it was an alright production but an amazing storyline. When I heard the movie was opening I knew I had to see it. Rent was more amazing then the production and brought new life to the same familiar faces. Anthony Rapp was extraordinary as Mark Cohen the filmmaker who eyewitnesses and interacts in all of the craziness. Roger and Mimi(played by Adam Pascal and Rosario Dawson) sparkled as a couple who find each other in an opening rendition of "RENT". A heartwrenching performance by Wilison Jermaine Heredia as Angel who has AIDS, a heart of gold, and makes all the friends realize how lucky they all are to be together. Angel's partner throughtout the story is Tom Collins otherwise known as Jesse L. Martin. His rendition of "Santa Fe" really makes you want to leave your life behind an open up a restaurant. Idina Menzel, notably from the Broadway musical "WICKED", was outrageous and humorous as Maureen the ex girlfriend of Mark and new girlfriend of Joanne. If "Jump Over the Moon" doesnt make you crack up I dont know what will. As for her lover, Joanne, cooly played by Tracie Thoms, she shows off her vocal ability brilliantly in "Tango: Maureen" which afterwards makes you want to learn the tango. The most pleasing part besides the characters and songs were the actors. Chris Columbus made a brilliant move to cast the entire original Broadway cast for the movie. The only newcomers being Tracie Thoms and Rosario Dawson. If you like musicals or just like a story that keeps you upbeat Rent is the movie that makes you want to believe in "La Vie Boheme". I know I did!

This movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen! I can never get enough of it. I saw it in the theatures about 10 times and saw it live. I feel this musical makes a very bold statement and really opens your eyes as to what really does go one with AIDS and it shows how love is love regaurdless if it is s gay or straight relationship.

RENT WAS AWESOME. That is all to it. I did not know there was a Broadway version but I both enjoyed both versions. (musical and movie.) It made me cry during 'Without You.' It makes you realize there is 'no day but today' and we should live it. I also loved 'La Vie Boheme' as the bohemians of Avenue A make fun of their lives and the lives of other people. To them, it was just that day to forget their problems. It truly shows "today for you,tommorrow for me."

OMG, I love this movie. Only thing that confuses me is how director of Harry Potter has any thing to do with this? In this movie, we learn about love, and family, in a rock opera manner. This made me cry in thearter, but hey, it was still good, especially in the beginning.Man, I can relate to this more than I did with 'Phantom.'
