    Romeo & Juliet (2013)

    2,478 views

    Romeo & Juliet is a 2013 British-Italian-Swiss romantic drama film adaptation of William Shakespeare's romantic tragedy of the same name written by Julian Fellowes and directed by Carlo Carlei. The film stars Douglas Booth, Hailee Steinfeld, Damian Lewis, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ed Westwick, Stellan Skarsgård and Paul Giamatti. The film opened in the United Kingdom and the United States on 11 October 2013.

This has led to a controversy, with several critics denouncing the film's advertising as misleading, and losing the essence of the play. The film has received negative reviews from critics and grossed $3 million on a £15 million budget.
