I've waited all year for this movie, only to learn it's not playing in my town. So I drove 45 miles alone in the pouring rain on opening day. Gorgeous movie, beautifully done, Douglass Booth as Romeo was just about perfect. The only flaw was Steinfeld as Juliet. She spoke too rapidly in many of her lines, did not enunciate clearly and showed too little emotion. But I will see it again tomorrow.

If you loved the Olivia Hussey version (1969, I think), you'll love this. Just perfect!

Wow! This is a wonderful movie that tells this timeless love story in such a refreshing and beautiful way. The relationship between Romeo and Juliet is so much more tender and loving than previous versions and the cinematography is visually stunning. The language feels authentic but is updated enough so you don't have to be an English scholar to understand what's being said.

The cast was great.. The set beautiful.. The story still current! I cried many times.
I only wish the marital bed scene was more like the black and white one. But I get that Juliet is a young actor! (The passion was not exactly believable)
I adored Romeo!! Well casted
I recommended his flick to my 20 year old daughter as she will love it too
