  • The arrival of In the Heights at cinemas last week was billed as a milestone for Hollywood. It is a film with a Latino cast, set in a diverse neighbourhood and adapted from the musical of the same name by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the man who told the story of a nation of immigrants in Hamilton.
  • Yet now the playwright and actor has issued an apology for the film not including enough black Latino actors in the cast. 
  • The film has been accused of colourism, a prejudice against people with darker skin tones in the same ethnic group; some people felt the film should have acknowledged colourism in the Latino community.
