Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet 2013
Review: Another film version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. A young man and woman meet and instantly fall in love. The only problem is that the two family are bitter enemies. They love each other so much that they are prepared to risk everything.
Director: Carlo Carlei
Actors: Douglas Booth, Hailee Steinfeld and Damian Lewis
Year: 2013
Genre: Drama and Romance
Conclusion: 2/5
Not the best adaptation of this great tragedy. Out of all the adaptations there are this is the most forgettable. I wasn’t very impressed with Damian Lewis’ acting. He was not directed well in this at all. This is adapted by academy award winner and creator of “Downton Abbey” Julian Fellowes. The piano playing was a bit much to cope with. This film version cannot compare with the 1968 interpretation of Franco Zeffirelli.
