Baz Luhrmann's full-throttle Shakespeare adaptation, selected by Felicity Jones for Misspent Youth.
A ridiculously fresh-faced Leo DiCaprio and Clare Danes star in this full-throttle tale of star-crossed lovers, selected as part of our Misspent Youth strand.
"I was twelve when Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet came out and spent many hours watching the film over and over again and listening to the incredible soundtrack. I couldn't believe how something so vibrant and electrifying and compelling could exist... a film that made Shakespeare completely relevant and intoxicating for a whole generation."
- Bournville-raised Felicity Jones, whose recent performance in Like Crazy has been making waves.
