  • Romeo + Juliet

    Romeo + Juliet, star-crossed lovers in a world of tumult, fight for their right to be together despite their family’s on-going rivalry. In this modernized Shakespearean legacy you’ll see a new flare on the same classic story and dialogue.

    ClearPlay In Action!

    Though this version of Romeo + Juliet has the classic dialogue and storyline, it’s still modernized and extremely eccentric and narcissistic. So you don’t need to worry about the language but be ready to see lots of drug use, alcohol use, fist fighting, and guns. In my mind I tried to justify all the guns by paralleling this version with the original and how the characters must have been with their swords, being an extension to their hands. However, in the end it still really bothered me that almost every scene has a gun waving around or being shot. And though I don’t think it was Shakespeare’s intention, I feel like this film took teen suicide and glamorized it. ClearPlay does a great job at shortening some of the more intense fighting scenes, but this film still has a LOT of violence and explicit drug scenes, it may be a teen romance and rated for teens but it’s a movie for adults!

    Will You Bite your thumb..at this the story of Juliet + Romeo?...

    If you are familiar with director Baz Luhrmann then the styling of this movie will be no great surprise. With this film and Moulin Rouge, Luhrman really does know how to push the envelope in making a movie quirky, sensual, futuristic, exciting, and still hold a decent storyline. I can’t say I’m a big fan of all the drug use and sexual innuendoes that he slides in his movies, but somehow I’m drawn to the films like a fish out of water that wants to go back in but sort of likes the breath of fresh air! You’ll either love this version of Romeo + Juliet or you’ll hate, as for this fish, I like movies that bring some fresh air!

    Rated PG-13 for scenes of contemporary violence and some sensuality; 120 min; Directed by Baz Luhrmann
