Award-winning director Baz Luhrmann (Strictly Ballroom) has updated Shakespeare's classic tragedy of young love and teen suicide in a unique new film, in which the warring Capulets and Montagues are gangsters who carry guns instead of swords. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Basketball Diaries) and Claire Danes (My So-Called Life, Little Women) Award-winning director Baz Luhrmann (Strictly Ballroom) has updated Shakespeare's classic tragedy of young love and teen suicide in a unique new film, in which the warring Capulets and Montagues are gangsters who carry guns instead of swords. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Basketball Diaries) and Claire Danes (My So-Called Life, Little Women) as the doomed lovers, the film is set in a modern city. The actors speak Shakespeare's words--but with their own American accents. Readers can now experience this new vision of Shakespeare's violent, tragic play alongside the Bard s original text, in a special single volume that features an introduction by the film's director.

    La interpretación que Baz Luhrmann hizo del clásico de Shakespeare es mi favorita. Tan diferente, tan alocada, tan romántca,... Baz es brillante y, aunque la película tiene algunos fallos, le puso todo el amor del mundo y se nota. Además del guión, en el libro está el texto original de la obra de teatro, que por cierto leí en una semana durante los descansos publicitarios de los simpson en a3 XD Me encanta esta obra y me encanta Shakespeare. Y Baz :)

    Two scripts … though both are certainly not alike in dignity. This edition of Shakespeare’s most cherished love story is interspersed with the screenplay of Baz Lurhmann’s entertaining 1996 movie. I know adapting “Sword” and “Rapier” as brand names of guns is lame, but you have to admit, the update is generally clever.

    I read this book in English, and enjoyed Shakespeare's amazing writing. I thought Romeo and Juliet acted foolishly at times, but otherwise it wouldn't have been a tragedy. Very well written!
