HWD Daily – La Vie Bohème
La Vie Bohème
Today, the best-actor race gets an electrical charge with Andrew Garfield’s sublime turn in Netflix’s new musical, Tick Tick…Boom!, based on the life and early work of the late Rent composer Jonathan Larson. As V.F.’s chief critic, Richard Lawson, writes in his review, “Garfield’s work here is the clearest distillation of his movie-star appeal, that shaggy warmth and intellect flecked with a swagger of haughty confidence. He powerfully manifests a creative spirit both in bitter ebb and glorious bloom.”
