The ageless story from the world's most renowned author is re-imagined for the 21st Century by Academy Award® winning writer Julian Fellowes (Downtown Abbey) and directed by Carlo Carlei (The Fight of the Innocent). ROMEO & JULIET stars Academy Award® nominee Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Douglas Booth (LOL) as the iconic star-crossed lovers. The all-star cast also includes Academy Award® nominated Paul Giamatti (Sideways), Emmy winner Damian Lewis (Homeland), Stellan Skarsgård (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and At World's End) and Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl).
“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
Romeo and Juliet is one of my favorite love stories, so I am really looking forward to watching this new adaption by Fellowes and Carlei. It has a great cast and the soundtrack sounds amazing too! I am also excited to see the costume design, I love how people dressed during this classic era. Oh, and Ed Westwick...hehehe.
