A 1996 version of the Shakespeare play, directed and coscripted by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!), that transposes the action to the American present. (The setting is a made-up city called Verona Beach.) With Leonardo DiCaprio as Romeo, Claire Danes as Juliet, John Leguizamo as Tybalt, and Paul Sorvino, Diane Venora, Brian Dennehy, Christina Pickles, and Pete Postlethwaite, among others. (Even M. Emmet Walsh is on hand as the Apothecary.) Craig Pearce collaborated with Luhrmann on the script.
