Dear Evan Hansen Review

Emma Schell, Student Journalist

I had the opportunity to go see the ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ movie in theaters two weekends ago and I enjoyed the movie.

If you don’t know what ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ is about, it’s about a high school student named Evan Hansen, and he has anxiety. He goes to a therapist and he has an assignment to write a letter to himself, talking about his day. Well, he printed it and a bully named Connor took the letter and walked away. Later that night, Connor takes his own life. The next day, everyone thinks Connor and Evan were best friends over one letter.

I would recommend this to people because I think this movie has a great story to be told. As someone who’s read the book and has listened to the musical several times, I enjoyed this. I would give this movie an 8/10.
