Modern adaptations don't often succeed, see the dreadful Carmen: The Hip Hopera. This uses the Bard's language and a contemporary lens to make a GREAT adaptation of a classic tale. Pyramus & Thisbe couldn't've done it better themselves. Movie Posters, Romeo And Juliet, Clear Danes, Baz Luhrmann, Williams Shakespeare, Leonardo Dicaprio, Favorite Movie, Juliet 1996, High Schools
One of my favorite childhood movies! About a grown-up Peter Pan. A must watch! "When Captain Hook kidnaps his children, an adult Peter Pan must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit in order to challenge his old enemy."
Ever After: A Cinderella Story - (1998) Director: Andy Tennant Stars: Drew Barrymore, Anjelica Huston, Dougray Scott The "real" story of Cinderella. A refreshing new take on the classic fairy tale.
This movie came out when I was a freshmen in high school. I had a cool mom who took me and my friends to see it multiple times. Coincidently, it also sparked my love of Shakespeare and poetry.That look on their faces says it all. It made me dream of falling in love.
Romeo and Juliet (1968) Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting. I'll never forget the day I saw this movie; I waited in line to buy my ticket right behind Ryan O'Neal and Leigh Taylor-Young, who were co-stars on TV's Peyton Place at the time. They were every bit as beautiful as Romeo and Juliet!
