William Shakespeare's timeless tale of love and tragedy gets a makeover in this update starring Douglas Booth as Romeo and Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet. Directed by Carlo Carlei ("The Flight of the Innocent") and adapted by Julian Fellowes ("Downton Abbey"), this film tells the familiar story of innocent young lovers snarled up in a bitter feud between their warring families, the Montagues and Capulets. Determined not to let their family stand in the way of true love, Romeo and Juliet run away to wed in secrecy. Alas, happily ever after is not to be. Paul Giamatti, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Damian Lewis, Ed Westwick and Stellan Skarsgard co-star in this beautiful and romantic production.
