I've read Romeo and Juliet a few times and always felt that there was something missing from the interpretations I've read. I mean, I always knew that Shakespeare wasn't holding them up as models of great love.

New ROMEO AND JULIET shot on location in Italy

New ROMEO AND JULIET shot on location in Italy | Romeo and Juliet BSC | Scoop.it

It's not revisionist and it's not flashy -- in other words, it's not Baz Luhrmann's modernistic vision. But it does feature 16-year-old Hailee Steinfeld and a script by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellows.

 

The new version of Romeo and Juliet stars Steinfeld (True Grit) and Douglas Booth (Darren Aronofsky's upcoming Noah) as the teenage lovers, with a supporting cast led by Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti. Stellan Skarsgård intones the openings words in the trailer, which lays out the tragic romance for those who may not have been paying attention in school.

 

Carlo Carlei directed. The traditional approach as worked well on period television shows, but the real appeal here is the cast. Can Steinfeld, who was so good in True Grit, not only pull off the accent but deliver a heartbreaking performance? Can Booth prove both swoon-worthy and electrifying? Lewis, Giamatti, and Skarsgård are proven commodities with proven material, so they should provide a minimum basis of quality in the film.

Shakespeare as reviser and collaborator?

Shakespeare as reviser and collaborator? | Romeo and Juliet BSC | Scoop.it
If the playwright’s larger-than-life myth has strained belief, it’s because of confusion about the synergistic culture he worked in
LizKelly's insight:

Interesting proof that Shakespeare did not write his plays alone.

DylanSmith's curator insight, June 25, 2013 9:40 PM

This video is from a teaching website and its actually a student's project about Romeo and Juliet. The video is a montage of drawings made and sums up the novel in about three minutes. The movie is made by several 8th grade students from a middle school in Charlestown, MA but I feel the same project could be used in a high school setting. 

 

This could be an interesting video to show a class when thinking about a Shakespeare project. This project would allow students who enjoy drawing to be a major influence in this piece while also testing their knowledge of the story. This kind of project could test so many aspects of the student, including their content knowledge of the book, their creativity, and their ability to work with others.
