Moncrieff Cinema Society presents
Romeo & Juliet (1996)

Baz Luhrmann adapts this classic Shakespearean romantic tragedy for the screen, updating the setting to a post-modern city named Verona Beach. In this much-loved, hip 1990s version, the Capulets and the Montagues are two rival gangs. Juliet (Claire Danes) is attending a costume ball thrown by her parents. Her father Fulgencio Capulet (Paul Sorvino) has arranged her marriage to the boorish Paris (Paul Rudd)  as part of a strategic investment plan. Romeo attends the masked ball and he and Juliet fall in love.

“Luhrmann's gleefully cinematic version of the play is so relentlessly inventive and innovative.”
Time Out

“Luhrmann and his two bright angels have shaken up a 400-year-old play without losing its touching, poetic innocence.”
Rolling Stone
