Romeo and Juliet DVD and Blu-ray Short Review

3 stars for this contemporary version of the Shakespeare classic.Romeo and Juliet cover
This new adaptation of the well known play by William Shakespeare is directed by Carlo Carlei (The Last Legion, Fluke) and adapted for the screen by Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park, Downton Abbey), whose influence is clearly visible in the lavish settings and costumes.
In case there is anyone out there not familiar with the premise of Romeo and Juliet, it tells the story of two star crossed lovers, living in the fair city of Verona (beautifully depicted in this film).
Romeo and JulietRomeo (Douglas Booth - LOL, Worried About The Boy) is a member of the Montague family and Juliet (Hailee Steinfeld - Ender's Game, True Grit) is the only daughter of Lord Capulet (Damian Lewis - Homeland, Dreamcatcher), two feuding houses, whose members openly fight to the death (or try to) in the streets of Verona.
