William Shakespeare was writing stories long before the medium of film was even concieved, and yet his works continue to influence cinema some 400 years later. This new assembly explores the enduring legacy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, looking at traditional adaptations like Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet, as well as more leftfield contemporary versions of his work, such as Baz Luhrmann'sRomeo + Juliet and animated variation Gnomeo and Juliet.

This resource consists of an assembly PowerPoint presentation, along with a .pdf of teachers' notes to complement the slides.
