Romeo and Juliet (1968)
|Director: ||Franco Zeffirelli|
|Cast: ||Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey|
More is always more in a Zeffirelli production. The Italian film, stage and opera director's baroque sensibility make a perfect marriage with Shakespeare's tale of first love. By casting unknown teenagers Hussey and Whiting and using of nudity and authentic locations, Zeffirelli endows the film with a primal, compelling air that will enchant even the most Shakespeare-resistant.
