Romeo + Juliet
Experience the magic all over again this Valentine’s Day weekend with Baz Luhrmann’s unbearably romantic, undeniably 90s adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, which transplants the play word-for-word into gunslinging contemporary “Verona Beach.”
The Capulets and the Montagues are two rival gangs. Juliet (Claire Danes) is attending a costume ball thrown by her parents. Her father Fulgencio Capulet (Paul Sorvino) has arranged her marriage to the boorish Paris (Paul Rudd) as part of a strategic investment plan. Romeo attends the masked ball and he and Juliet fall in love.
