    I may be too influenced by Franco Zeffirelli's version of Romeo & Juliet which was a master piece. This version is somewhat disappointing, the sets, costumes, and locales were all wonderful. The acting on the other hand had much to be desired. It seems Shakespeare eluded the actors.

    Absolutely gorgeous movie with a great cast and supremely handsome Romeo. Shakespeare made easily digestible. My husband loved it as much as I did.
