Dear Evan Hansen was an incredibly well-done movie. The message that it contains hits home so hard that you’ll walk out of the theater a lot heavier than when you walked in. The ongoing issue with mental health has finally been given the attention it deserves.
Ben Platt was simply amazing. He was able to capture the role so well that just watching his facial expressions would bring you to tears. Then you hear him explain what is inside him, his thoughts, fears, and anxieties. It was a work of art.
I’m extremely happy that there is a movie for people to watch and live inside of a troubled mind for a while. Perhaps after watching this movie people may be more aware of those who surround them. Does someone need help but isn’t reaching out? Society needs to reach out and help their fellow humans instead of bringing them down.
The movie is depressing because it’s real. The message is important. I hope that you can see this movie and come out a little, no, a lot more compassionate and more aware. Let’s not let the quiet ones slip through the cracks. Reach out and listen. You could save a life with your kind words and a listening ear.
About The Peetimes: This was not a “Peetime friendly movie.” I feel that there were no good choices. I lean towards the 1st Peetime. There is no dialog which makes for an easy summary. The 2nd Peetime has a lot of dialog that I was able to sum up but only stuck it there for an emergency.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Dear Evan Hansen. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
