'96 | Williams Shakespere's Romeo & Juliet

I never saw this film until we read the classic tale my freshman year of high school. I have to say it was absolutely stunning. The story itself remains a timeless tale, open to endless reinterpretations. I thought the use of the original script was a eloquent touch. And it made the usually boring Bill interesting for everyone. The guys indulged in the heightened violence and urban culture of drugs, youth, and fearlessness. And of course, all the ladies swooned over the charming talent of Leonardo DiCrapio, as we used to call him in back in the day. Apart from the film, again, is the outstanding soundtrack which featured young Quindon Parker's rendition of "When Doves Cry" and Des'ree's "Kissing You." A definite classic for the ages and pop culture staple of that decade.
