Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet is a lovely, sensitive, friendly popularization of the play...
Fresh: The success of the film depends upon Whiting and Miss Hussey...They are magnificent.
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.
Fresh: High-minded and lively, with heartbreakingly beautiful actors on show, and all shot in a kind of honeycomb-sunglow light.
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 year...boo itunes......boo
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.
