Romeo + Juliet Description

Baz Luhrmann’s modern classic unfolds with its heart on its sleeve and guns ablaze. In this dazzling adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic love story, OSCAR® Nominee Leonardo DiCaprio stars opposite Claire Danes. They light up the screen as the original star-crossed lovers against a thumping soundtrack and a boldly imagined modern-day setting.

In the floating continent of Neo Verona, the Montague family seized control and murdered every member of the Capulet family with the exception of Capulet's daughter, Juliet Fiammata Asto Capulet. 14 years later, Juliet and the remnants of Capulet's retainers live hidden from the iron fist of the Montague family. Juliet has long forgotten the murder of her family or her identity, and cross dresses as Odin and the town's hero of justice, "Red Whirlwind." A sudden escape in her daily escapades leads her to meet Romeo Candorebanto Montague, the kind son of the tyrannical Montague. Destiny has been set as these two individuals soon to be "star-crossed lovers" are cruelly toyed with by fate in the midst of war. Loosely based on the play by William Shakespeare.

    I rented this movie and the payment went through. However, I am unable to download it for some reason. It would start downloading and then fail. I have cleared my memory and even restarted my iPad. Nothing worked.
  • Beyond Awful.

    I'm not sure why the film industry likes to bastardize the classics, but this was beyond awful. It's as if they were dying to have DiCaprio as the star (why, I don't know) but he can't do Shakespeare, so they wrote a script for him. Whatever their reasoning, it doesn't work in the least. Horrendous.
  • Best Ever!

    Many people disliked this movie because of the strange sets, and use of the original play's script. I feel that's what makes this movie so amazing! You can't quite tell when it's set which adds to the timelessness of the story.

    This is the worst movie I have ever seen, not only was it inaccurate and idiotic but it was a terrible way to portray William Shakespeare's play. The actors fitted to portray certain characters were ill-suited and wrong! His attempt to make it modern was only confusing and it lost the real emotion found in Romeo and Juliet. Let's not forget his camera work looks like I could have dome it on snapchat.
  • I love it!!!!
