A loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous romantic tragedy. Romeo and Juliet is the most filmed play of all time – and one can assume it will never lose its appeal to filmmakers in search of a great story.

Romeo and Juliet are in love, but they are members of a rival feuding clans ... and Juliet is due to marry a nobleman. They are wed in secret all the same, but fate and a foolish vendetta conspire against their happiness. Rating: PG13V
