The Best and Worst 'Romeo and Juliet' Adaptations

14 of 17

Best - 'Romeo + Juliet' (1996)

Australian director Baz Luhrmann modernized Shakespeare’s most famous romantic tragedy in a completely unique way. Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes starred at Romeo and Juliet. The movie retains the original Shakespearean dialogue from the play, but the characters are represented by modern day figures (including gangs, businessmen, etc.) The movie was a hit with younger crowds and it aided in bringing the age-old love story to a new generation.
