'The course of true love never did run smooth'

This film is the saving grace for all students studying the play for their GCSE Shakespearian English paper. Pumping rampant life into what is often perceived as a tired old verse.

Everyone knows the age old story of ill fated love on the wrong side of the tracks, but this film spot on translates it into a modern context whereby the language barrier that exists for many just dissipa... read more

I actually already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again.  When it was released, it was a little bit controversial since they took a classic Shakesperean play but set it in our modern time with a very flashy directing style.

Classic story of Romeo and Juliet, set in a modern-day city of Verona Beach. The Montagues and Capulets are two feuding families, whose children meet and fall in love. They have to hide their love from the world because they know that their parents will not allow them to be together. There are obstacles on the way, like Juliet's cousin, Tybalt, and Romeo's friend Mercutio, and many fights. But although it is set in modern times, it is still the same timeless story of the "star crossed lovers".

Movie Reviews (551-600) (50 movies items)

" Retelling and modernizing of the classic Shakespeare story for a generation that lack concentration power but at least it manage to show that the classic story will last forever even when it is fast edited and colorful to look at as a music-video. Claire Danes and Leonard diCaprio look great together though but the film is extremly flawed at times. "

"Not a bad movie, but it was too noisy and the direction was a bit weird. Also, I don't think it was a good idea to keep the original script with the set being nowadays, it felt too awkward."

A good movie

“I actually already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again.  When it was released, it was a little bit controversial since they took a classic Shakesperean play but set it in our modern time with a very flashy directing style. Eventually, this bet paid off, it turned out to be quite successful  and many similar adaptations followed but, except for '10 Things I Hate About You', none of them really worked, I'm afraid. Coming back to our main feature, they took another big risk by keeping the original text of the play and, even after re-watching it today, I'm still not sure if it was really a wise choice. Indeed, not only it didn't really fit this modern  setting but some of the actors clearly struggled with the a” read more
