ROMEO AND JULIET STILLS (Photos) – The most popular Shakespearean tragedy returns to the big screen in Romeo and Juliet starring Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld as the titular characters. Unlike previous film adaptations, this film does not use Shakespeare’s traditional dialogue, but instead has been adapted by Academy Award-winning writer and Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. Nevertheless, the romantic tragedy was filmed in Verona, the traditional setting used in the play. Romeo and Juliet is directed by Carlo Carlei and also stars Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ed Westwick, Lesley Manville, Christian Cooke, Stellan Skarsgard, Tom Wisdom, and Natascha McElhone.
PLOT: Romeo and Juliet are “star crossed lovers”. When two enemy families meet, forbidden love ensues. A William Shakespeare classic.
