The much-talked-about musical drama film In The Heights boasts of an ensemble cast headlined by actor Anthony Ramos, including Corey Hawkins, Melissa Barrera, Leslie Grace,  Daphne Rubin-Vega, Olga Merediz, Gregory Diaz IV, and Jimmy Smits. It is based on the eponymous stage musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes. The official synopsis of In The Heights by Warner Bros. reads:

Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.
