  • This Romeo and Juliet is hard to take seriously - and simply hard to take. show more

  • The older the actors here the better they are, as pros like Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis have it all over low-voltage young leads Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld. Relativity will be lucky to milk anything more than a moderate take from this pretty but unexciting enactment. show more

  • Fellowes' many changes diminish the power of Shakespeare's story. show more

    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.
