Its Romeo and Juliet, we all know the story, unless you are from mars or something (by Charming20)
I am quite a fan of Shakespeare. I have seen both the DiCaprio/Danes version and the version I believe is from the 60s or 70s. I prefer the latter but I will say that this 2013 remake of the play is the best by far. I have read reviews with people complaining that the story is "too quick" and that the characters turn puppy love into something rash and over the top. If you have actually read the play you will know that this is completely accurate. Romeo and Juliet fall in love upon seeing one another. They are children and this is Shakespeare. The couple literally falls in love at <more>
first sight, and marries the next day. It may seem ridiculous to a person of the 21st century but honestly in R&J's time period people were married off to people they had never even seen before, so for them to fall in love so quickly is actually a better alternative to what actual people during their day would have had as their marriage. Both Steinfeld and Booth are excellent in their roles and even though I have read this love story over and over and completely know the outcome even if you have not the narrator tells you the whole story in his opening monologue , this adaptation still managed to bring tears to my eyes, which no other version has managed to do before. Julian Fellowes has done it again. Just like Downton Abbey Fellowes has created a masterpiece and Shakespeare would be proud.

Friday, October 11, 2013 / Relativity Media*************************************** Paul Giamatti does an excellent job as Friar Lawerence, and should be nominated as best supporting actor. I best remember Paul as Rudy in ' The Negotiator ' and as Santa Clause in ' Nick Clause '.With an all-star cast including Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgard, it affords those unfamiliar with the tale the change to put faces to the two names they've undoubtedly heard innumerable times: Romeo and Juliet.
The Best Romeo & Juliet Adaptation (by samishoward)
I truly loved the Julian Fellowes adapted, Carlo Carlei directed film version of Romeo & Juliet. The costumes, hairstyles, and actual Verona setting were lush and beautiful, perfectly evoking the Italian Renaissance setting. Hailee Steinfeld was perfectly cast as Juliet. Juliet was, after all, only 13 in Shakespeare's play. Hailee was 15 during filming, and her youth and innocence made me empathize with this tragic heroine even more than usual. Douglas Booth was a gorgeous, emotionally wrought Romeo and I thought that he perfectly captured Romeo's rashness and romance. Paul <more>
Giamatti was great as the friar; his performance finally made me like the friar I usually blame him for the bad outcome of events and understand that he really was well-meaning. Ed Westwick was perfect as the snarling hothead Tybalt. I'll look forward to seeing him tackle another villainous role in future.This Romeo & Juliet had the perfect mix of humor, romance, and heartbreak. I like that Julian Fellowes slightly modernized the language without compromising its beauty or meaning. There were also some additional scenes that offered some fascinating back-story, such as why Tybalt was so put out from the beginning of the story, the reason Capulet was so eager to marry Juliet to Paris, and the cruel twist of fate that caused Romeo to never receive that crucial letter. If you love historical romances, Shakespeare, or good movies, go see this one. It is now my favorite version of R&J ever. It is a great testament to this film, that during the whole film I felt anxious and hoped against hope that this time things would turn out differently, this time Romeo and Juliet would get their happy ending. The movie is that fresh and vibrant that it can make you long for a story of less woe.
What I thought of the film (by chelsea-taylor-110)
I gave Romeo and Juliet a nine out of ten because i loved the film it was the play by William Shakespeare made into a film. they had still used the Shakespearean language with i thought was really good. The casting for the characters were really well done Haillee Steinfeld was amazing at her part as Juliet. I wen to watch this movie with three of my friends that are not really into Shakespeare and they came out of the cinema with wet cheeks as the acting skills from Douglas Booth who played Romeo was amazing and there wasn't a dry eye in the cinema by the end of it. I strongly Recommend <more>
this film as it is a classic that can't have been made better.
From time to time, a film director decides to adapt Shakespeare's plays. In all fairness, it's great stuff and deserves to be taken to the screen. However, when this happens, the people particularly those whose mother tongue is English don't like it and have great difficulty in understanding that, when a book is adapted to cinema, it has to be adapted or adjusted. Its a necessary job, and does not spare any book or author. It can be hard to accept, especially for the purists, who see Shakespeare as a kind of untouchable "sacred cow", but the truth is that cinema can be <more>
based on literature but its not literature. I say this because I realized that this film was the target of massive criticism for the way the book was adapted. The writers were so incompetent? They cut something important to the understanding of the story? They have profoundly altered it? No. But they sought to adapt the text a little, for dramatic purposes. The essential was there, untouched, and this does not shock me. This is cinema, not theater, and people have to understand that the public goes to the cinema to see a movie, not a recorded play. Do you want the original text, ipsis litteris? Read the book or go see the play. Cinema is concerned in keeping the story, not the text. Almost all movies are so, this is no different. Now let's talk about the movie.The movie is interesting, keeps the essence of the original story, but changes the dialogues and interpretation, abandoning the artificial tone of Shakespearean theater and taking a more natural posture. The idea is good, its a breath of fresh air, but I think the posture adopted is too "XX century" and something is missing in the way the characters act that remind us the fifteenth century. One of the most reprehensible things is the amount of kisses and touches. This does not fit the historical period depicted, much more puritanical than ours. The actors did a decent job, engaged and committed to the story itself. Douglas Booth was by far the best Romeo I've seen in the movies, much more credible than Leo was in "Romeo + Juliet". Hailee Steinfeld was not bad either, but her acting has seemed a little forced in some scenes. Everything else is absolutely impeccable: the bright, colorful picture is magnificent, in harmonious combination with the great scenery and locations chosen for filming, and that depict faithfully what have been Verona during this time. The costumes also fit into the historical period and are exquisite. The soundtrack, discrete but present, fulfills her role with great skill.Far from being a bad movie, this movie will never be understood by the public who are not able to see the difference between literature, theater and cinema. Despite some minor flaws, the film is well done and does not deserve at all, in my opinion, the severe criticism it has received.
. . . is brought to the big screen here by the people behind one of TV's tawdriest modern-day soap operas. To please his patron Queen Elizabeth I, Britain's first post-invasion monarch NOT consecrated with a pope's blessing, William Shakespeare needed to portray Roman Catholics as being evil idiots in his entertainments for Elizabeth and her henchmen. In that vein, this movie is a faithful adaptation of old Bill's hate speech, showing R.C. Friar Laurence Paul Giamatti conspiring with fickle serial killer Romeo Montague Douglas Booth and near-bigamist Juliet Capulet Hailee <more>
Steinfeld to break as many of the Ten Commandments as they possibly can in 118 minutes or three days, story time . After a final gratuitous slaying by Romeo thwarts the Friar's plot to get the evil-doers off "happily ever after," the hypocritical R.C. authorities of Verona are shown glorifying the double-suicide couple on holy ground, one ultimate sacrilege. The acting, costumes, art direction, location, music, and pacing all conspire here to drive home Shakespeare's TRIUMPH OF A WILL.
Brilliant Cinematography, I don't believe they "changed" any of the lines, instead the writer adds further explanation of the details. (by ShearahElrel)
I'm quite shocked that this adaptation is receiving bad reviews. They come out with a new version of Romeo and Juliet every 10 years it seems and although I still love Romeo+Juliet from the 90s I love this one for different reasons. Romeo and Juliet is such a beautiful tragic love story, I applaud the filmmakers for their choices. I loved the setting for this film, such beautiful and grand locations. Romeo and Juliet is set in Verona and this film captures it beautifully. The jousting in the opening scene was genius for that was probably taking place at the time. It was more historical <more>
accurate and it really showed and felt right for Shakespeare's classic. I loved how Romeo was a sculptor, when he is talking about Rosaline and sculpting her, that was perfect for the time period. Romeo as an artist just makes sense. At first, I had reservations that Bonvelo, who let's be honest is the real reason why Romeo discovers Juliet's "dead" is played by such a young actor but he made me a believer, when Romeo gives him that final goodbye, it was just heartbreaking. Men were also made at a younger age during that time so we can historically accept that. Also, when Bonvelo gives Romeo the news, Romeo has this moment where he looks up at that beautifully painted Fresco and he has that very Hamletesque moment the "To be or not to be," inner struggle that the filmmakers probably wanted the audience to reference. No film production of this play will please everyone, alas I feel in love with it!It was those little details that were added that made me enjoy this adaptation. I cried again for the star crossed lovers, this film has magic for those who give it a chance!
I was asked by someone why I went to go watch the movie because we all know how it ends. It is exactly how it ends that makes this movie based off Shakespeare's play so great and we all know how it ends so there's no need to explain. The acting was great and the movie offered a great visual escape for its entire running length. I agree with another poster that this movie does not move too fast but rather stays fairly true to the actual play. Fans of the play will definitely be pleased by balcony scene where Romeo is professing his love for Juliet as it is one of the better scenes in <more>
the movie. If you're a fan of Shakespeare you'll definitely enjoy this movie.
I loved this love and haters gonna hate (by fenix-lee)
First rec of all, so Hello to everyone. I've been start the movie with very low expectations and than it ended up with me chocking back tears. That's the first time I've been truly touched by the drama of Romeo and Juliet and I'm not afraid to shout it out!Lots of hate was spread on the lead-pair, but I totally disagree: they're young as, in fact, the characters in the Shakespeare's play! , and well maybe a bit inexperienced, but that's what makes them beautiful, what makes they're love so 'real'! There's rush in them, and hesitation, and kissing <more>
and kissing back, and whispers and clumsiness, as just as the first young love is. I was so touched by the emotion they seems to share in each glance and kiss and they're pain was so hearth- breaking...The setting is undeniably amazing as it is shooted in Verona and Mantua which I live in, so it was pretty weird to see it's palaces and streets in a movie! and the plot is well supported by the soundtrack. Moreover, as it comes to the cast, you'll love Paul Giamatti's performance as Friar Laurence, which is definitely both touching and flawless.To sum up, I do think you should give this movie a chance and watch is as it is meant to be: not a impeccable Elizabethian's play, but a story of a young true love struck by hate. Remember how it was you're very first love and give in to the feelings inside you. Here it comes it's essence!Ps: do forgive any logical/lexical/grammatical mistakes I might be done in writing this, English's not my mother tongue!
