Dir: Baz Luhrmann, M, Australia, 1996, 120mins, DCP
Baz Luhrmann helped adapt this classic Shakespearean romantic tragedy for the screen, updating the setting to a post-modern city named Verona Beach.
In this version, the Capulets and the Montagues are two rival gangs. When Juliet (Claire Danes) meets Romeo (Leonardo DiCaprio) at a costume ball thrown by her parents, they fall deeply and irrevocably in love.
‘Luhrmann’s gleefully cinematic version of the play is relentlessly inventive and innovative’ – Time Out
