Romeo And Juliet Nat Waddington
Romeo and Juliet is updated for the 21st century audience. Luhrmann's innovations succesfully create a fast-paced, colourful & humorous re-telling, that still pays homage to the talents of the bard.
The cast is unfaultable, DiCaprio & Danes' youthful charms are tempered by performances by Hollywood veterans such as Pete Postlethwaite, and the soundtrack, featuring the likes of Radiohead and Quindon Tarver, is superb. The costumes are visually stunning, and capture the essence of such familiar characters, from the white dress that captures Juliet's innocence to the sinister outfits of Tybalt.
This film is the perfect mergence of the old and the new, to be enjoyed by Shakespeare and Luhrmann fans alike. A must-see.
