Romeo & Juliet Blu-ray Giveaway

Inventive, unconventional, controversial, Luhrmann’s Oscar-nominated adaption of William Shakespeare’s Romeo+Juliet finds the star-crossed lovers in the modern world of Verona Beach where Romeo drives a car and Juliet packs a gun. Set to a thumping soundtrack, amidst the threat of gunfire through and the delicate embrace of forbidden love, the audience is invited to drink from an intoxicating cinematic cocktail that takes them on a ride from Romeo and Juliet’s budding love, their first kiss, through to their separation and ultimate demise.

Considered a modern classic, this iconoclastic film adaptation that redefined the timeless tale for a new generation stars a pre-Titanic Leonardo DiCaprio (Shutter Island, Inception) and Claire Danes (The Family Stone, Shopgirl), as the youthful star-crossed lovers. The film went on to achieve box office success and widespread acclaim, a multi-platinum soundtrack album, and won four BAFTA Awards including the David Lean award for best direction and two Berlin Film Festival awards including the Silver Bear for Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance as Romeo.

I am so thrilled that one of my favorite movies of all time is finally being released on Blu-ray for the first time October 19th!  If I had to make a list of my top 5, Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo & Juliet would undoubtedly be on it.  Originally released in theaters November 1, 1996, I can remember the first time I saw it on the big screen.  I was in awe that Director Baz Lurhmann could take one of the world’s  most tragic and beautiful love stories and update it so brilliantly without making it a spectacle.

Both Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio went on to make remarkable movies in the years after this coupling, but I truly love their chemistry and innocence in this movie!  The soundtrack was also one of my favorites.  Ah memories!
