Steven Spielberg's cinema adaptation of the classic musical West Side Story looks to set the record straight with a cast that fully represents the Latin American community portrayed in the production, which previous versions have failed to do.

The original 1957 stage hit and subsequent 1961 film adaptation enthralled audiences with a tale of love and torn-allegiances amid conflict between two New York gangs, the Puerto Rican Sharks and the Jets, a white gang. EFE
