'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 dissipates, as the talents and vibrancy of the cast render it invisible.
The cinematography is stark and contrasting in its hard edge to the unduely rose-tinted tale.

The soundtrack of contemporary, adapted and remixed songs adds yet another unexpected dimension of enjoyment to revel in.

The young cast rise to fill the big shoes laid out before them and the script flows like songs from their lips. The passion they display and the earnest portrayal of their emotions make my heart scream out to the two idiotic, lust filled youngsters each time, but alas head strong they are and to their deaths they run, and of course;

'The course of true love never did run smooth'

You shouldnt mess with Shakespear. I can lend you the Al Pacino The Merchant of Venice. He plays a mean Shylock. Thats how Shakespeare should be done.

I didn't realise you were such a Thespian Biggs. I've only recently been introduced to the works of Pacino, I've been living in the dark for all these years, so it would be a welcome offer.
