More Movies Please!

Let me ask you one simple question: are you going to throw away your shot at listening to a podcast episode featuring an amazing movie about a certain somebody named…

Alexander Hamilton?

I sure as heck hope not! We’re wrapping up our entire month of musicals with the captivating, rapturous 2020 film by Thomas Kail, Hamilton. Boy, what a doozy this one is.

From his humble beginnings all the way to his gruesome demise, Alexander Hamilton shows us what it takes to not only be a person who holds their convictions most dear, but also form an entire freaking nation. He’s dedicated. He’s a dreamer. He… has some serious flaws.

We’ve all got the honor of seeing his life dramatized in one of the most invigorating and electrifying stage plays that’s ever been made. Seriously, if you walk away from this movie without a stirring of intense emotion, then you should watch it again because you probably missed something important. There’s a reason why it’s one of the most successful Broadway shows ever, and that reason is on full display here. If you haven’t already, then sign up for Disney+ and watch it.

This is a deep movie about an important man’s entire life. There’s far too much to recount in the show notes of a podcast. Stop reading this and just listen to the episode already!
