Watch Romeo Juliet

"My only love sprung from my only hate."

Romeo + Juliet is a 1996 film that is a modern retelling of the Shakespeare play, starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Claire Daines in the title roles. Although the film is a modern retelling, the original dialogue stays the same and the actors carry out the modern plot, while using the Old English diction associated with Shakespeare's plays.

The plot itself, much like the play, revolves around rival families and the star crossed lovers that should never be involved and their families would never allow. Both at times feel loyalty to their families, but can never escape the love they have for each other, and yearn to run away together and escape their lives.

The modern take on the classic play has been widely praised for keeping the same tone as a Shakespeare play, as well as making a modern re-telling relevant to today's times, allowing teachers to show the movie in classrooms, to further teach children about Shakespeare.
