A zillion actresses in the world and Hailey S. I'm baffled as to how anyone could bastardise Shakspeare to such an extent that it was almost unrecognisable. But when young Romeo, a Montague, first sets eyes on the virginal Capulet daughter Juliet, no enmity between families can prevent his falling in love with her, and her with him. The two are instantly smitten but dismayed to learn that their families are enemies. The young men of both families are hot-blooded and ready to fight at any provocation, despite the Prince's edict against such fights. Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet fall in love against the wishes of their feuding families.
It's the language of the play that makes it so wonderful to me. A tournament to start the film? In fact, most of the supporting players such as Damian Lewis's Lord Capulet are welcome pros next to the amateurish leads. I could go on - you get my drift. Add to that another woe: Douglas Booth's Romeo is prettier than Steinfeld with only slightly better articulation. Or at least take out the line 'What satisfaction canst though have tonight? The general story itself never interested me until I read the play and similarly themed stories such as West Side Story have never captured my interest.
Despite the hostility, Romeo Montague manages an invitation to a masked ball at the estate of the Capulets and meets Juliet, their daughter. From this risk-laden romance comes both joy and tragedy for all. Giamatti's range from sweet confessor and cupid to perplexed operative is masterful. Job well done Mr Fellowes because I barely recognised any of it so if that was your intention then, bravo! Director Franco Zeffirelli's beloved version of one of the most well-known love stories in the English language. Booth was fine as Romeo, not great, but not bad.
Had Will Shakespeare had access to movies, who knows what we would have??. The Tybalt-Juliet scene after the ball? I didn't mind that they changed some of the dialogue to make it easier for today's audience to understand because we know that today's audience members are too busy texting to actually learn anything about the original play - what I do mind is the fact that this movie is a farce. Oleh Layarkaca21 Synopsis In the city of Verona, two families have a prolonged and ancient feud. Great true love story just end sadly. I only stayed for an hour and that is an hour of my life I will never get back. Maybe that would have been more interesting if Romeo hadn't already moved on, but it just seemed strange. However, for sets and cinematography, his production is beautiful, having been lovingly filmed in Verona.
The scenery was nice and the music was okay, but that's all. Mercutio a Montague rather than the Prince's family? She seems to be reading lines and not adding any emotion or inflection most of the time. I hate to sound all snooty and say you shouldn't mess with Shakespeare I'm sure it's not perfect but I would think a screenwriter would set a pretty high standard for changing what the Bard wrote, and based on the number of changed lines, I get the feeling that Fellowes set the bar pretty low. From this risk-laden romance comes both joy and tragedy for all. I don't see any reason why this would replace the Zeffirelli version as the cannon version of the movie. Look for his Oscar nomination for best supporting actor.
Romeo and Julie meet at a ball and just walk away and start making out? Awesome and heart touching movie I've ever watched. Movie No ordinary love story. And almost everyone has probably read or was supposed to have read the play in high school, so it's not as if this is going to be the first exposure to the play for most people. Also it was very disconcerting watching a 'boy' play Romeo that was prettier than many females I know. This makes the Leo DiCaprio movie look good, at least it was full of emotion and Mercutio was actually a unique character. This is hardly a new dynamic as I would say that both Leonardo DiCaprio and Leonard Whiting were 'prettier' than their respective Juliets who were both lovely! In the end, I don't think that Haillee Steinfeld was a strong enough actress for Juliet.
Theater and media are, indeed, very different media. I'd definitely recommend this movie! From this risk-laden romance comes both joy and tragedy for all. You are watching the movie Romeo And Juliet 2013 2013 produced in Italy, United Kingdom belongs in Category Romance, Drama , with duration 118 Min , broadcast at Cmovieshd. In the city of Verona, two families have a prolonged and ancient feud. Synopsis In the city of Verona, two families have a prolonged and ancient feud. The Montagues and the Capulets co-exist under the stern eye of the Prince, but the hatred between the families threatens all, in particular the children.
Yet the real reason to see this new production is Paul Giamatti's Friar Laurence, a benign manipulator undone by forces beyond his control. Her portrayal of Juliet lacks depth and she simply does not possess the beauty to be a Juliet - especially if you pair her with Douglas Booth as Romeo. I wish I hadn't gone to see it, waste of money. The Montagues and the Capulets co-exist under the stern eye of the Prince, but the hatred between the families threatens all, in particular the children. So, the outdoor production I saw this summer outflanked director Carlo Carlei's uneven take. They fail in this real world but win and get united for ever at heavens with peace. Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet fall in love against the wishes of their feuding families.
I am in two minds about this film: On the one hand I can honestly say that I enjoyed it and that it swept me away in the timeless love story. I don't buy that the language is too hard for modern audiences: even the most opaque puns and outdated language can be translated to audiences via acting and directing. Sure enough, the most famous lines are all there, but the movie frequently deviates from Shakespeare's text. The film, while featuring the besieged friar, also does a successful job highlighting the egregiously intense hormonal urges of young men: Tybalt Ed Westwick and Mercutio Christian Cooke have the feral ferocity of doomed warriors. Lesley Manville as the Nurse is second only to Giamatti, a loving servant with a twinkle and a deep understanding of the lethal games. If you enjoy Twilight, this might be for you. Another reviewer complained that Romeo is more beautiful than Juliet in this film and I have to agree that this is true Now for the good: 1 Bringing fierceness and intense passion to the role, I thought Douglas Booth was a really good Romeo.
