A Modern Adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (1996)

Classic story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, set in a modern-day city of Verona Beach still retaining its original dialogue. The Montagues and Capulets are two feuding families, whose children meet and fall in love. They have to hide their love from the world because they know that their parents will not allow them to be together. There are obstacles on the way, like Juliet's cousin, Tybalt, and Romeo's friend Mercutio, and many fights. But although it is set in modern times, it is still the same timeless story of the "star crossed lovers".
