Slovenski opis filma:

Natalie Wood in Richard Beymer v vlogi mladih ljubimcev, ki doživljata usodo Romea in Julije med sprtima tolpama New Yorka.Zgodba se začne s prikazom zračne perspektive Manhattna, ko spoznamo dve sprti ulični tolpi: Jetse, drugo generacijo že ameriških najstnikov, in Sharkse, portoriške imigrante. Ko vojna med Jetsi in Sharksi doseže vrhunec, se vodja Jetsov Riff (Russ Tamblyn) odloči izzvati Sharkse na zadnji dvoboj. Pristane na sestanek z njihovim vodjo Bernardom (George Chakiris) na vojaškem srečanju, ki bo na šolskem plesu. Da bi bil prepričljivejši, Riff s seboj pripelje svojega starega prijatelja Tonyja (Richard Beymer). A Tony se zaljubi v Bernardovo sestro Mario (Natalie Wood) in vse kaže, da se bo njuna ljubezen tako kot pri Romeu in Juliji končala tragično …

Originalni opis filma:

West Side Story is the award-winning adaptation of the classic romantic tragedy, "Romeo and Juliet". The feuding families become two warring New York City gangs- the white Jets led by Riff and the Puerto Rican Sharks, led by Bernardo. Their hatred escalates to a point where neither can coexist with any form of understanding. But when Riff's best friend (and former Jet) Tony and Bernardo's younger sister Maria meet at a dance, no one can do anything to stop their love. Maria and Tony begin meeting in secret, planning to run away. Then the Sharks and Jets plan a rumble under the highway - whoever wins gains control of the streets. Maria sends Tony to stop it, hoping it can end the violence. It goes terribly wrong, and before the lovers know what's happened, tragedy strikes and doesn't stop until the climactic and heartbreaking ending.
