Movie Reviews

Quite Good . . . Nicely Staged
Magnus | 08/30/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Though not as romantic or adventurous as the 1968 and 1996 versions, this take on the star-crossed lovers follows the text much closer (but still edits out a few lines here and there). No standout performances, as everyone in the cast does a credible job. One curiosity: the actress Juliet looks and sounds much older than the teenager she was originally written to be. Romeo and his cronies work well together, and fiery-haired Tybalt is just plain mean.

Performed as an Elizabethan period piece with simple but effective staging and costumes. Directors of amateur theater groups should give this version a gander.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent complement to your English 9 curriculum. The DVD contains a dramatic production of the famous Shakespeare play. All scenes from the play are in this version. It provides an excellent contrast to the 1968 version (still considered the best) and the newer Leonardo DiCaprio version. If you want the entire play performed on stage with actors, you might consider showing this to your students."
