With 29% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, the production was massacred by the foreign press and received several criticisms for presenting problems in the execution of its script and in the direction.

For some critics, the film has gigantic distractions, which reveal an artificiality throughout the narrative unfolding. Other professionals, on the other hand, have little praised the good intentions of the film, which aims to deal with delicate themes such as depression, suicide, trauma and grief.

Enjoy watching:

“Dear Evan Hansen, this could have been fun, but there are a lot of glaring issues that cannot be ignored for the sake of it.” – Complexe Valérie, Hollywood Daily deadline

“Chbosky’s poor directorial choices negate the thrilling stage success of Dear Evan Hansen, with a cascade of glaring distractions that continually underscore the artificiality of the genre.” – Tina Hassannia, indieWire

“Dear Evan Hansen has bothered me on Broadway, and it doesn’t suit me right now, despite some clever hardware upgrades.” – Peter Debruge, Variety

“Even if you come in with reservations, even if you don’t succumb to your most extravagant moments, the film surprises you. Go ahead, smile, get hurt, or shed a tear – you’re not alone. – Steve Pond, TheWrap

“Despite annoying distractions, Platt and the company still manage to deliver the right message at the right time.” – Michael Rechtsaffen, Hollywood journalist

“Dear Evan Hansen, your heart is obviously in the right place. Despite the noble intentions, however, this is a film that is almost at war with itself. – Joey Magidson, Awards Radar

“Dear Evan Hansen gives a pleasant and melodious voice to the great preoccupations of modern times, but he lacks the dramatic and cinematic resources to really take off.” – Ian Freer, Empire Magazine

Ben Platt, who played Evan Hansen in the original play, takes over the character in the film version. Recall that the star received the Tony Award for his performance in the musical.

Nik Dodani will play Jared, friend of Evan’s artist family, while Amandla Stenberg will play Alana, Evan’s classmate who hides a deep loneliness. Stenberg will also perform an original song from the film. Julianne Moore will play the mother of the main protagonist.

Kaitlyn Dever will bring Zoe, the love interest of the goofy protagonist of the same name, to life. Colton Ryan will play Connor, one of the story’s main catalysts. Amy Adams will be Connor’s mother, while Danny Pino will be her husband.

The plot follows a young high school student who suffers from social anxiety and finds himself caught up in his own lie when he decides to claim he had a close relationship with a classmate who had committed suicide.

The play won six Tony Awards in 2017, including Best Musical.

Stephen Chbosky (“The Benefits of Being a Wallflower”) signs the direction of the project. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are in charge of the soundtrack.

Steve Levenson, who wrote the musical comedy book, is responsible for the screenplay. Marc Platt (‘La La Land: Singing Seasons’) and Adam Siegel join as producers of the film.
