Romeo and Juliet is a wild celebration of youthful rebellion set against a backdrop of a violent and unstable world, not unlike our own. This is a Verona where surveillance cameras capture your every move and even your most exquisitely private moments become public domain. Romeo and Juliet is a tragic romance plucked from the jaws of a comedy that moves like a blazing meteor towards the inevitable destiny of its two star-crossed teenagers.
