Directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the film is based on the semi-autobiographical musical of the same name by the late Jonathan Larson, who is best known for writing and creating the iconic rock musical Rent.

Andrew Garfield leads Tick, Tick… BOOM! as the late theatre composer and takes place in 1990 as Larson balances his job at the Moondance Diner in Soho while preparing for a workshop of his musical Superbia.

It also examines how the HIV/AIDS epidemic started to ravage the gay community in New York and how queer talent weren’t – and still aren’t – afforded the same opportunities in the industry as their heterosexual counterparts.
