When the trailer for Dear Evan Hansen (Universal, 9.24) popped on 5.18.21, the worldwide reaction was instantaneous. One, this was clearly a gentle, sensitive high-school musical that was determined to snowflake its audience to death, and two, Ben Platt, who plays the titular character, is too old to play an 18 year-old. Platt was 27 when the film was shot, and he looks at least 33 or 34.
