William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet (1996)


Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes were together famous, in this modern day immortal love tragedy from William Shakespeare. Taken place in Verona Beach in a big city far away, the Montague’s and the Capulet’s have been arch rival families since they first met, and began this feud.

Armed with many handguns, some revolvers, machine guns and shotguns, they do a lot of fighting. This made the Chief of the Police, Captain Prince so angry, he warned them.

However, things took a twist when Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet were in love together. And had the best moments that they could cherish. But when things got out of hand and a lot worse, they had no choice but to commit suicide.

I can’t tell you for how they killed themselves. But I can tell you this: Romeo and Juliet are finally together all to themselves.

And when both are dead, taken away buried, both the parents of the Montague’s and the Capulet’s felt very ashamed, and very miserable to themselves. And Captain Prince; he condemned both families to be punished. This became so splendid, by director Baz Luhrmann, this was nominated for an Oscar award. For Best Art Direction- Set Decoration. But lost when “The English Patient” took it.

It maybe harsh to watch this in high school, when you’re learning William Shakespeare at a young teen age. However at 24 years of age, it’s good to watch this. Recommended for young adults, 7/10 stars on this. Pretty dramatic, but you’ll get used to it.
