I really liked how Roger’s story was told through flashbacks in this sequence as opposed to exposition via Mark. I also prefer not knowing exactly how April died. The explicit suicide explanation never sat well with me.
No screencaps of “the best ass below 14th street,” sorry. I honestly was kind of disappointed in this sequence. The actors had great chemistry, but it was a little too long for my tastes. But I feel that way about it in the stage version too. :\
I cannot get over the cinematography in this film! Every single scene is gorgeously lit and choreographed. I’m not even a huge Rent fan, but the show is growing on me now just from seeing how beautiful the movie was.
