Storyline

When eight cadets are left behind at an isolated military high school, the greatest romantic drama ever written seeps out of the classroom and permeates their lives. Incorporating the original text of 'Romeo and Juliet,' YouTube videos, and lip-synced Indie rock music, Private Romeo takes us to a mysterious and tender place that only Shakespeare could have inspired.

i loved this movie
17 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

i loved this movie !!! it was so intense ,unique and authentic-original ! for me this movie is a must see !I mean the dialogs between the actors .The re-edition of the classic Romeo and Juliet , the acting , everything ! I could say it is a fresh romeo and Juliet adjusted to the present.Actually i loved the fact that all the dialogs were taken from the original (with some changes) and the way the actors pronounced them . it was the best movie i have seen for a long time .it captured me from the first time because i was watching something for the first time ,and the acting was so good . i watched it in one breath . sorry for my English.
