Romeo+Juliet, 1996

Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.

Baz Luhrmann




William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (often shortened to Romeo + Juliet) is a 1996 American romantic crime tragedy directed, co-produced, and co-written by Baz Luhrmann, co-produced by Gabriella Martinelli, and co-written by Craig Pearce. It is an adaptation and modernization of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Romeo and Juliet. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes in the leading roles of Romeo and Juliet, who instantly fall in love when Romeo crashes a party and meets her, despite being members of feuding families.

At the 47th Berlin International Film Festival in 1997, DiCaprio won the Silver Bear for Best Actor and Luhrmann won the Alfred Bauer Prize.
