Synopsis

It may be more traditional than the famous modern version starring Leonardo DiCaprio, but this earlier adaption of Shakespeare's tale of star-crossed lovers was just as controversially received when it was released. Not only did it streamline the action by cutting half of the play's dialogue, but - for the first time - the two leads were played by actual teenagers. The story is as engrossing and as heart breaking as ever, and there are some terrific supporting performances.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
