Romeo & Juliet: A Love Song

1h 47m Musical 2013

Directed by:Tim van Dammen
Written by:William Shakespeare

Set in a far-North trailer park, this audacious take on Shakespeare’s love story is a contemporary rock operetta mixing such diverse musical styles as rap, ballad and hard rock. The director, Tim van Dammen draws on a career in music video directing to keep the visual style as dynamic as the musical accompaniment.

Shakespeare’s text fits surprisingly well into the various musical styles and a youthful cast perform with great energy and dedication. The chemistry between the two leads is palpable, bringing an authenticity to the story that leaps from the screen . Clever, vibrant and unerringly beautiful, this is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before.
