This has to feel like such a hollow victory for Aaron. He should've gotten his first Tony a decade ago for Next to Normal, not now when he was literally the only nominee.

I’m refreshing the Tony Awards tag on Twitter and I just see hundreds of Tom Hiddleston prayer circles for his win. 😂

Turns out I’m way more emotional about Aaron Tveit (FINALLY) winning a Tony than I thought I’d be, so here’s an assortment of past Broadway appearances, including some (Gabe) that should have received (Frank) their own Tony nominations (Gabe and Frank).

Sorry for the late review but seeing Dear Evan Hansen as a movie was so freaking exciting and I was in the “THIS IS THE BEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME EVERYTHING ABOUT IT IS SO PERFECT” mood.
But after taking a few days to reflect and get out of that hyped mood I am ready to roast as much as praise so let’s get into it 
Also I actually had planned to take notes as I was watching it so I don’t forget what to share on my review but I was too busy eating my chocolate and crying so this is what you get
Warning: It’s a bit long and I’ll make a “keep reading” for the parts with spoilers so don’t worry! 
Okay first of all movie Connor was my least favorite Connor and it’s not because of Colton Ryan, I love him so very much.
The thing is that in the musical Connor was kind of like an iceberg. He gave off the vibe that there was more to him beneath the surface that you can’t quite see. In the book, they elaborated that (by introducing Miguel) and showed us what Connor’s really like underneath. But it felt like in the movie they took that from him and he was just more stereotypical, all the depth of his character was kind of gone and I didn’t like it. (Again, it’s just how the movie made me feel. I just didn’t get the same energy from Connor that I always do) 
And Kaitlyn Dever, she was EXACTLY how I imagined Zoe Murphy. I literally have nothing to say, she was simply outstanding and has an amazing voice. 
And I already knew Nik Dodani was going to be an amazing Jared from his former role in Atypical. (Zahid and Jared together would be unstoppable and the most chaotic duo) 
His Jared was definitely different than the musical, but not in a bad way. My only disappointment about him was not seeing him more in the movie. Which I really want to scream more about but can’t without spoiling a few things so I’m going to save my ranting for the part with spoilers. 
I think all the adults (Heidi, Cynthia and Larry) were amazing and so well-done. I just wish Larry wasn’t Connor’s step dad because it adds up to my first point,  stereotypicality. Problems between children and their step parents are more likely to be seen. Larry and Connor’s relationship was a great example of how every father-son can’t connect or can have trouble connecting with each other. Larry didn’t have to become a step father for that purpose. 
And “Good For You”. It was a song that definitely shouldn’t have been cut. With how the events were unfolding and the dynamic of the movie, it would fit in perfectly and I really felt its absence. 
And for Ben Platt, his performance was beyond amazing as always, he also made me cry several times, no surprises there. And the whole age situation didn’t bother me as much as I thought it would. Like he didn’t completely blend in, but he also didn’t stand out at a disturbing level. 
AMANDLA STENBERG- How did I come this far without mentioning her she was literally one of my favorites. Alana’s personality was also a bit different than the musical but by all means not in a bad way. I actually liked the changes and the song they gave to her.
I’m only a little pissed about how Jared didn’t get treated the same way as Alana. Alana wasn’t just the smart girl just like Jared wasn’t just the funny guy. They enhanced Alana’s backstory and gave her a song to explain her character better. WHY ON EARTH DIDN’T JARED GET THE SAME THINGS WE WILL NEVER KNOW. (okay maybe I’m more than a little pissed) 
Overall, the events mostly followed the musical and the songs were mostly the same as the musical, it was all so similar and yet so different at the same time. 
It was quite an ~experience~ 
If you’ve read this far, thank you so much for taking the time to read my ranting and let me know what you think!
And now, even more rambling, but with spoilers! 
OKAY LET’S TALK ABOUT THE ENDING. 
I was so happy to see they included the part from the book where Evan tried to get to know the real Connor and read his favorite books.
After seeing that, I was really hopeful Miguel would come too, but he didn’t. And I truly don’t understand why. They could have made Miguel the guy who sent Evan the video of Connor. They also could have added the line from the book to the email where Miguel said:
“Connor, he was just... I’ve never met someone like that. That innocent. That pure. Sometimes I think maybe he was too pure... for all this.”
And people would be like, “that doesn’t sound like the Connor that was described throughout the movie”, “who the fuck is this guy anyway”, “how does he know Connor so well” 
And they would be like. “oh, so you want to know more? we have a book that explains it all! why don’t you buy it?” 
See, quite simple and beneficial for everyone. 
Other than the fact that it was missing Miguel, I loved the ending, seeing that video of Connor really made me tear up. 
Moving on, let’s talk about JARED KLEINMAN/KALWANI 
Why did they cut the heated argument between the two family best friends? 
Where was “FUCK YOU EVAN, ASSHOLE” ??? 
I mean at least Jared didn’t disappear completely like he did in the musical but also they literally hugged and took a graduation photo at the end like nothing happened. A little apology scene wouldn’t have hurt anyone. And a little song for Jared wouldn’t have hurt anyone too. 
Moving on, let’s talk about two little changes before I finally shut up. 
First one is when Connor said, “That’s the saddest fucking shit I've ever heard.” After that scene I thought maybe none of the characters are cursing but then Zoe said “No fucking way!” or something like that. So why didn’t they let Connor curse? 
And the second one is when Zoe came to Evan’s house and they didn’t make out on her dead brother’s bed. 10/10 arrangement.
Again, if you’ve read this far, thank you so much for taking the time to read my ranting and let me know what you think!
