Romeo and Juliet
Director Franco Zeffirelli’s beloved version of one of the most well-known love stories in the English language, Romeo Montague (Leonard Whiting) and Juliet Capulet (Olivia Hussey) fall in love against the wishes of their feuding families. Driven by their passion, the young lovers defy their destiny and elope, only to suffer the ultimate tragedy.
How tragic. Two young people very much in love give the ultimate sacrifice as they believe this will allow them to be together. Romeo and Juliet fall in love despite all the hatred their families have for each other. Their two families are arch enemies and refuse to try and settle their differences. Its sad that even in medieval times there was so much hate and mistrust. Little did William Shakespeare know how true this story can be in today’s world.
