  • 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

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

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