Synopsis


Romeo & Juliet
William Shakespeare's timeless tale of love and tragedy gets a 21st century makeover in this update starring Douglas Booth as Romeo, and Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet. Directed by Carlo Carlei (The Flight of the Innocent) and adapted by Julian Fellowes, Romeo & Juliet finds the innocent young lovers caught up in a bitter feud between their warring families, the Montagues and Capulets. Determined not to let the sins of their families' turbulent pasts stand in the path of true love, Romeo and Juliet run away to wed in secrecy. Alas, happiness was not to come, for in time the flames of their youthful passion will consume them both. Paul Giamatti, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Stellan Skarsgard co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Romeo and Juliet has always been a timeless piece of work. This movie went and reimagined the story but kept to the originality of the play and didn't steer to far of course, like the 1996 version. While I have always been attracted to the essence that is Romeo and Juliet, the story of forbidden and tragic love, every time a new version is made I am equally as happy as before. Great movie. Great acting. Loved it

    The actors Douglas Booth,Hailee Steinfeld and especially Damien Lewis and Paul Giametti...you have to love these people...especially the actors who played Romeo and Juliet....Douglas Booth is a rather new actor...but delivers quite a punch!..I have seen him once before in Masterpiece Classics Great Expectations as Pip...he is a fantastic actor and his Romeo was just as perfect as his Pip character,I have never seen Hailee Steinfeld before...but was very,very impressed...and have seen Damien Lewis,and Paul Giametti before and are very,very good....Damien Lewis actually makes Lord Capulet very likeable...he really cares for his daughters welfare.....maybe off on somethings...but that is how dads can be sometimes...Paul Giametti as the priest seemed more like a father figure to Romeo then his own dad did...but all in all it was done very good and I really liked, and also no swearing or nudity at all,and that is always good especially if you have kids

    As a teacher, I am always looking for additional movies to my classroom library. This one is one that I have needed and it was a bonus that it was priced so reasonably.

    Yep, here's another movie following the same story. but this one is more along the lines of the original, with great set pieces and costumes. I still prefer the Leonardo Dicaprio movie but this was ok.
