“Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene.“
Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare
Chorus 1, Stanza 1&2
When the star-crossed lovers of two enemy families meet, forbidden love ensues… I mean, if you are not familiar with William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet by now…
Prepare yourself for October 11, 2013, we will be getting a new adaptation of William Shakespeare’s, Romeo and Juliet. The cast for is very well put together, and they are all very attractive!
In my personal opinion, it looks like they did a fabulous job bringing one of my most beloved classics onto the big screen. There will always be differences, there will always be something someone doesn’t like, but remember it is an adaptation. There is room for flexibility, as long as the heart isn’t changed.
But in all seriousness, go read the book, first. I will provide you with a link, so there are no excuses. Romeo and Juliet. If you can’t seem to hack reading the book (shame on you), then I recommend watching the Leonardo DiCaprio/Claire Danes version.
Enjoy the trailer!
