something to honk about

the ultimate love story, Romeo and Juliet

cover for dvd Leonardo diCaprio and Claire Danes kissing
We watched this movie tonight. This is the 1996 Baz Luhrmann directed Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo diCaprio and Claire Danes. The script is the Shakespearean prose – the modern movie setting gives the old fashioned prose new life and new context. Everything about this movie is epic, original (yet from a timeless classic), and magical. It is one of my all-time favorite movies. So beautiful. I love, love, love it.
