Modern day Verona Beach, Florida ...with mafia-type families, customised cars and designer guns, the story is as relevant today as ever. Shakespeare's genius was in telling intricate stories in an entertaining way for a mass audience. Luhrmann gives us two hours of breathtaking imagination, stunning visuals and a brilliant soundtrack in this gleeful cinematic update. Every word spoken is from the original 400 year old text. The film set a bench mark for the rush to put Shakespeare on celluloid.
