Young love triumphs in a new batch of images from Carlo Carlei’s “Romeo and Juliet”. Well, it triumphs for a while, anyway. I mean, who doesn’t know how this story ends? Unless the movie completely boots the original story and does its “own thing” — then well, we all know who ends up happily ever after — and who doesn’t — don’t we?
But hey, let’s lie to ourselves and pretend we don’t know how it all ends! Yay!
In the fair city of Verona, Romeo (Douglas Booth) and Juliet (Hailee Steinfeld), children of the feuding Montague and Capulet families, meet at a feast and fall deeply in love. Despite the sworn contempt their families hold for each another, they steal away and are secretly wed. It is not long, however, before a chain of fateful events changes the lives of both families forever.
Starring Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Ed Westwick, Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti, Stellan Skarsgård, Lesley Manville, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
