Aro Favourite William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet


USA 1997, 115 minutes
Dir. Baz Luhrmann
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Performing Arts, Shakespeare, Youth

Topics: Stageplay, Educational Resource.


Aroview: Visionary director Baz Luhrmann takes his STRICTLY BALLROOM crew to the Americas and conjures a cinematic universe of striking originality and other-worldliness that somehow perfectly compliments the pomp and melodrama of the text. Hardly textbook Shakespeare, but we suspect the Bard himself would think it was seriously cool!
