Baz Luhrmann's scintillating modern take on the Bard's classic romance stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire 'Homeland' Danes as the star-cross'd lovers whose families are at war. The action is moved to Verona Beach - a neighbourhood of lethal weapons and fast cars - where the Montagues and Capulets are perpetually at each other's throats. Smartly cast and thrumming with Luhrmann's contemporary soundtrack and visual pizzazz, tragedy never looked so cool.
