Damian Lewis is playing Juliet's father, Capulet in this film version. Claire Danes played the title role of Juliet in the previous film adaptation. Both Lewis and Danes star in Showtime's Homeland. See more »
I was asked by someone why I went to go watch the movie because we all know how it ends. It is exactly how it ends that makes this movie based off Shakespeare's play so great and we all know how it ends so there's no need to explain.
The acting was great and the movie offered a great visual escape for its entire running length. I agree with another poster that this movie does not move too fast but rather stays fairly true to the actual play. Fans of the play will definitely be pleased by balcony scene where Romeo is professing his love for Juliet as it is one of the better scenes in the movie. If you're a fan of Shakespeare you'll definitely enjoy this movie.
