Film

Transformations of Romeo & Juliet:

First released on November 1, 1996 Produced by Baz Luhrmann Retains Shakespeares original plot Some text has been cut, but nothing has been added (1/3 of the dialogue)

11 Luhrmanns Version

Luhrmanns Version

Is no longer a 15th century drama Transposed to modern day Verona Beach Downtown LA-style cityscape, a run-down, half-derelict urban setting Maintains the divisions of Montague and Capulet (families become corporations) Dialogue remains faithful to the text in many respects (Elizabethan dialogue) Doublets and hoses now become retro-seventies costumes (Romeos Hawaiian shirts, Tybalts leather pants, etc.) Instead of swords, characters, carry 9mm automatics emblazoned with brand names such as sword or rapier

12 Luhrmanns Version

Luhrmanns Version

Montagues and Capulets ride around in low-rider gang cars (gang-like appeal) Television used as major mode of communication (Newscasters=Chorus) Giant skyscrapers Utilizes items that may have been rather risque for original setting (Mercutio in drag) Drugs are a technicality (ecstasy pill) Clear distinction of race (Mercutio is black, Montagues are Hispanic, Capulets are Caucasian

13 Luhrmanns Version

Luhrmanns Version

Rap music Religion plays an important role (Juliets statues, Christ status in Verona Beach, Montague and Capulets guns) May resemble an actual performance of a Shakespeare play (camera angles) Modern day setting dilutes the tragedy
