A new movie about the most famous star-crossed lovers is coming to the UK and the US. Romeo & Juliet has a release date of October 11, 2013 in both countries. As you can see by the below trailer, the movie is lush with wonderful production values. However the film has caused a controversy as the dialogue isn’t true to the work of William Shakespeare. Julian Fellowes, of Downton Abbey fame, is credited as the writer.
