The breathtaking Broadway phenomenon becomes a soaring cinematic event as Tony®, Grammy® and Emmy Award® winner Ben Platt reprises his role as an anxious, isolated high schooler aching for understanding and belonging amid the chaos and cruelty of the social-media age. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Stephen Chbosky, Dear Evan Hansen features music and lyrics by the Oscar®, Grammy® and Tony®-winning songwriting team of Benj Pasek & Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman), including two brand new songs and the iconic anthem "You Will Be Found."




  • Horrible

    By Casey Ryback Jr
    The music is good but the story is horrible. Add to that Ben Platt looks way too old to be playing this character.
  • What a performance!

    I couldn’t be happier that Ben Platt’s portrayal of Evan Hansen is now forever captured. Seeing him on Broadway in this role was mind blowing and like nothing I’ve ever seen before or since from a male actor in a musical. He perfectly pivots his performance for film and it’s clear he understands every single nuance of every single word he speaks or sings. The performance is raw, unleashed and flawless. His masterful musicianship & singing is on full display and you can tell the director is a fan of Ben & the music. The film is a love letter to the original stage play & yet also finds ways to tell the story in even more detail because of the medium. The movie isn’t perfect but there’s so much here that’s great, it just doesn’t matter. I am pretty sure I went through a half a box of tissue crying. I can’t wait to watch it again.
  • CAUTION: You cannot select specific songs!

    By D Money 2323
    SO disappointed - I got the iTunes version instead of waiting a week for the Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital combo: my mistake. You cannot jump to specific songs, either within the movie itself or the Special Features (“Songs to be Seen” extra is them talking about how they filmed each song). At least with a Blu-Ray or DVD, you could advance scene-to-scene with one click to find your favorites. I’m devastated, this is one of my all-time favorite musicals.
  • Relevant and touching

    I was touched by the movie - so relevant and a great reminder that we are not alone
  • It’s not a comedy…

    I see some 35 year old dude pretending he’s a high school student, I think Comedy. I was wrong…very wrong.
  • Well…

    By Ddiddy01
    Look… I love the stage play and I love Ben Platt. Many of the characters have good qualities in the movie… but there was not one scene where Ben Platt pulled off looking as if he was in high school. Some of the original songs were not included and although two were added, the original songs sorta act like glue to bring the viewer more into the emotions of the family ties and some of the angst felt. I will say that many of the songs in the movie are not sung with as much passion or heart as on broadway. Highly suggest seeing the stage play BEFORE you see this, as this does it zero justice. In all honesty, if I weren’t such a fan of the storyline, I’d recommend skipping this altogether. Le sigh. I was so excited to see this, too!

    This movie really helped me through a tough time… the music, the characters… bravo! Can’t wait to purchase the blu ray!
  • If you like the musical you’ll love the movie

    By Jondul1
    There are some slight tweaks from the story line from the musical, but I think they work. The people who don’t like the movie obviously don’t like the musical, don’t let them scare you off.
  • Yaaaaaas

    Please everyone needs to see this movie
  • Love it!

    By RJ Bataycan
    I love it. I saw this on Broadway, but the movie is pretty good too. I mean, there are missing songs, but hey, it’s a movie. If you want to hear the whole songs, go see it on Broadway.
