William Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet gets a truly bonkers reworking in this inventive and hugely entertaining CGI comedy. Played out as the title suggests, by garden gnomes rather than humans, and boasting a star-packed voice cast, the animated tale centres on the forbidden romance of young Gnomeo and Juliet. All this cute, pottery pair dream about is being together, but sadly they’re caught in the middle of a turf war involving the blue-hatted garden gnomes and their red-hatted rivals, who live in neighbouring, suburban backyards. Whenever the groups’ respective homeowners aren’t watching, battle commences, with hilarious, slapstick and pun-filled results. Can the pint-sized lovers bring peace between the Reds and Blues, or are they destined to be apart forever?
