Movie Info

Well before the world knew of the Tony award-winning Broadway musicals Hamilton and In The Heights, Lin-Manuel Miranda was in an improvisational hip-hop group called Freestyle Love Supreme along with director Thomas Kail and performers Christopher Jackson and Anthony Veneziale. Filmmaker Andrew Fried began chronicling the group in the summer of 2005, documenting the early days of Freestyle Love Supreme beatboxing and rapping on the sidewalks--unaware of how their story would unfold. Fourteen years later, Fried captures them reuniting for a series of shows in New York City that led to a triumphant run on Broadway. Both poignant and inspired, We Are Freestyle Love Supreme recalls the creative dreams of youth and why this show still means so much to these accomplished performers.

Critic Reviews for We Are Freestyle Love Supreme

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

We Are Freestyle Love Supreme has an exuberant theater-kid earnestness that will either prove endearing or grating depending on how you feel about backstage warm-up games and spontaneous sidewalk performances.

June 6, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Does the viewer care about the evolution, mechanics and process of free-style rapping? Perhaps not, but it's hard not to be impressed, if not awed, by the spontaneous invention exhibited.

June 4, 2020 | Full Review…

Although it might overestimate the audience's knowledge of this particular improv group, it is somewhat extraordinary just how formative it was and how fond they still are of those early days.

June 4, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Will hold "Hamilton" fans or anyone fascinated by the origin stories of artistic genius.

June 2, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's about as sweet to see friendship survive success as it is to see Lin-Manuel Miranda as the world's most adorkable Beastie Boy.

February 15, 2020 | Full Review…

It's warm and personal, but sharp enough to know when to show a few bumps in the road of the mutual admiration society.
