Story


In the fair city of Verona, Romeo (Douglas Booth) and Juliet (Hailee Steinfeld), children of the feuding Montague and Capulet families, meet at a feast and fall deeply in love. Despite the sworn contempt their families hold for each another, they steal away and are secretly wed. It is not long, however, before a chain of fateful events changes the lives of both families forever.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..today's version will likely become a cheat sheet for slacking students, but it won't inspire them to open their hearts to the text..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..the film never really comes alive as a visual experience, despite the well-chosen locations, the handsome sets and Carlo Poggioli's sumptuous costumes..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..Romeo & Juliet is an uneven, albeit handsomely mounted, adaptation. But it's a forgettable entry among the dozens of movie adaptations of Shakespeare's tragic romance..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
