Directed by Baz Luhrmann | 1996

With Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes, John Leguizamo

Set in modern-day Verona Beach, California, this neon-tinged vision of the Bard’s star-crossed tragedy casts the Montagues and Capulets as two rival gangs. Retaining Shakespeare's dialogue, Luhrmann’s opulent 20th-century update bursts with passion, music, and romance and is sure to spark dialogue and debate in any classroom.

Appropriate for grades 10—12.
