William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet - Baz Luhrmann
with Claire Danes, Leonardo di Caprio, John Leguizamo, Pete Postlethwaite, Harold Perrineau, Paul Sorvino, Miriam Margolyes. 121 mins + trailers.
I’ve never waited for permission to do anything. People just say, ‘He’s a bit crazy, but let’s give it a go.’
Join us for a mini-season of three of Luhrmann's best loved films, fusing story-telling with pop culture in glorious technicolor:
William Shakespeare’s Romeo +Juliet “Luhrmann's adaptation refuses to age”
The Great Gatsby, “a wayward, lavishly theatrical celebration”
Moulin Rouge! "a jukebox musical romantic drama"
Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio star as Shakespeare’s rapt, star-crossed lovers in Baz Luhrmann’s flamboyant take on the tragic romance. Hyperkinetic, wildly colourful and full of anarchic verve, it imagines the Montagues and the Capulets as wealthy families whose rivalry translates into gang warfare – amidst which continual violence, Juliet Capulet (Danes) and Romeo Montague (DiCaprio) meet and fall fatefully in love. With John Leguizamo, Pete Posthelthwaite, Miriam Margolyes and Harold Perrineau in supporting roles, it’s an original, irreverent but very heartfelt film that now feels like a ‘90s classic.
