Spend Valentine’s Day right with this cult rendition of the classic love story of Romeo and Juliet. Combining sumptuous direction by Baz Luhrmann, and an epically cool soundtrack, it features captivating performances by the young Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.

Set in a modern-day city of Verona Beach, the Montagues and Capulets are two feuding families, whose children Romeo (DiCaprio) and Juliet (Danes) meet and fall in love. The couple are forced to hide their love from the world because they know that their parents will not allow them to be together. Battles and obstacles impede their way, but their love for one another holds strong. Although set in modern times, this is still the same timeless story of two “star crossed lovers”.

Luhrmann's gleefully cinematic version of the play is so relentlessly inventive and innovative, it takes 20 minutes to get a grasp on how appropriate is his approach to the material.

Luhrmann and his two bright angels have shaken up a 400-year-old play without losing its touching, poetic innocence.
