In director Baz Luhrmann's contemporary take on William Shakespeare's classic tragedy, the Montagues and Capulets have moved their ongoing feud to the sweltering suburb of Verona Beach, where Romeo and Juliet fall in love and secretly wed. Though the film is visually modern, the bard's dialogue remains.

Baz Luhrmann did his own flashy re-thinking of The Great Gatsby back in 2013, but long before that, he took on Shakespeare with his eye-popping interpretation of Romeo + Juliet, the ultimate story of star-crossed lovers that Luhrmann made palatable for the masses thanks to a contemporary setting, an impressive cast, and Luhrmann's accustomed cinematic razzle dazzle.

Claire Danes really shines as Juliet in this film as the infamous story of two star crossed lovers destined to be together.
