Romeo + Juliet (1996)
Baz Luhrmann’s modern classic unfolds with its heart on its sleeve and guns ablaze. In this dazzling adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic love story, OSCAR® Nominee Leonardo DiCaprio stars opposite Claire Danes. They light up the screen as the original star-crossed lovers against a thumping soundtrack and a boldly imagined modern-day setting. The bard's dialogue remains intact in this modern take on William Shakespeare's tragedy, as the children of two feuding families are drawn together. Shakespeare's famous play is updated to the hip modern suburb of Verona still retaining its original dialogue.
