Inspired by Puccini's La Boheme, it's set in 1989 New York and focuses on a group of artists struggling to make it, pay the rent, find love, deal with heroin addiction and the AIDs epidemic that is having a devastating effect on their gang.

This is a touching and heartfelt tale from Jonathan Larson, who passed away just before it opened on Broadway, but sadly it doesn't work that well on film. The biggest problems are the lyrics and the fact that director Christopher Columbus, who made the first Harry Potter film, hasn't delivered the necessary emotion pull. It is a classy looking production, though, and Rosario Dawson gives a strong performance as Mimi.
