This Classic Can't Be a Bad One

"Romeo + Juliet" is a film retelling the greatest tragedy piece of William Shakespeare. Set in contemporary time, Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes brought back Romeo and Juliet and their best of its kind love story.
This film wasn't really that solid to pull everyone into emotion, passion and love as much the original has done it- of course. I think, it struggled because of the entertainment value they want to give than just to focus on the oozing passion in it.DiCaprio did well, but Danes? I actually questioned her at first. I don't know if I should appreciate the use of the original dialogue, because it seemed distracting looking at the whole picture.
