About the Movie

Shakespeare's classic tale of romance and tragedy. Two families of Verona, the Montagues and the Capulets, have been feuding with each other for years. Young Romeo Montague goes out with his friends to make trouble at a party the Capulets are hosting, but while there he spies the Capulet's daughter Juliet, and falls hopelessly in love with her. She returns his affections, but they both know that their families will never allow them to follow their hearts.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet is a lovely, sensitive, friendly popularization of the play... – Renata Adler, New York Times, Jan 3, 2018

Fresh: The success of the film depends upon Whiting and Miss Hussey...They are magnificent. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Oct 18, 2008

Fresh: The sets are tight and stagey, every corner is decorated with baroque lushness, every shot framed by a velvet curtain or silvery branch. And the dialogue isn't caged in by any attempts at naturalism. – Alex Chambers, Little White Lies, May 20, 2016

Fresh: High-minded and lively, with heartbreakingly beautiful actors on show, and all shot in a kind of honeycomb-sunglow light. – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian, May 19, 2016

Really Romantic

this is a really good classic film and it won two oscars... the plot is a little bit tangled but its a really good film.


Why itunes why...spend time putting movies that are worth while in the store, not bad movies i was forced to watch freshman

Classic in all forms

This is the best movie adapted from one of Shakespeare's greatest plays. I've seen this during my high school days and it gripped me, internally; what ever that means. Buy it and watch it. I highly recommend it for anybody who is a fan of his legendary work.
