Rent

This film adaptation of the Pulitzer and Tony Award winning Broadway musical stars many of the original stage cast, and follows the lives of seven friends whose Bohemian life in New York's East Village is coming to an end. The AIDS epidemic and the realities of making it in the big bad world have thrown them into turmoil. Hugely popular, and still running on the Great White Way, 'Rent', based loosely on Puccini's 'La Boheme', was one of the first big musicals to feature openly gay and bisexual characters. Produced by Robert de Niro who reportedly cried when he read the script.
