"Hamilton" is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and show tunes, "Hamilton" has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theater--a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. Captured at the Richard Rodgers Theater on Broadway in June 2016, the film transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way.

Alexander Hamilton always calls Aaron Burr "sir" in the show, a term of respect typically used during this time frame for people in positions of authority or for elders. However, Hamilton and Burr are about the same age and Burr never was in a position of authority over Hamilton. Lin-Manuel Miranda stated that he did this in order to highlight the wealth and class gap between Burr and Hamilton and to show the vulnerability of Hamilton's position compared to Burr because of this.
