Romeo + Juliet 1996 is nice sad love story. A film by Baz Luhrmann. The film puts the Romeo and Juliet story into a modern day setting while still retaining the original script. In addition to being a great this version of romeo and Juliet explained the book in a new way. From the beginning you feel overwhelmed as you try to embrace the visual and audible power of the film, but as the movie progresses you discover that you become in tune with the pace of the movie.
“Shakespeare’s famous play is updated to the hip modern suburb of Verona still retaining its original dialogue.”

He acted decently, But he was weird and had weird teeth and didn’t look Tybult-y enough, And that is speaking as a Shakespearean fan. Baz Lurhmann’s “Romeo + Juliet” doesn’t even come close to “Moulin Rouge“. The soundtrack is possibly the best I’ve heard. Another credit is that it might actually get kids vaguely interested in Shakespeare. I saw this in the theater in 1996, and loved it at first. But then I realized it could of been done better. But it’s still worth a watch.
