A stunning new version of Shakespeare's timeless romantic tragedy from the creator of 'Downton Abbey'. The Montagues and Capulets are at war, frequently brawling in the streets of Verona. So when Romeo (Douglas Booth) and Juliet (Hailee Steinfeld) fall for each other, life proves difficult for these star-crossed lovers. Friar Laurence (Paul Giamatti) helps them to marry in secret, but the enmity between their families is too strong for a reconciliation. The greatest love story of all time, Shakespeare's 16th century classic has been reinterpreted time and again. But there hasn't been a faithful version since Zeffirelli's 1968 Oscar winner. Now lauded 'Downton Abbey' creator Julian Fellowes has scripted this new adaptation, which makes exceptional use of its gorgeous Italian locations. The to-die-for cast is led by Hailee Steinfeld, who was Oscar nominated for her performance in 'True Grit', and Douglas Booth, who played Pip in the BBC's recent adaptation of 'Great Expectations'.
