    It may well be the definitive film version of the play, on top of being perfectly edited to the bare essentials of the story its got great performances all around (in particular Hussey and Whiting).

    Yes I think we all get the picture that the leads played their roles fantastically. The movie itself wasn't perfect because of the cheesiness of it. It's great if your into romance films but it's not for everyone. Olivia Hussey is definetely the best Juliet there's ever been. It's solid for a romance but as I said it wont hold universal appeal. The reason being for me because it didn't feel like it was on a large enough epic or tragic scale.

    I liked this version, but I had a feeling they had a lot of vreepy clothes and terrible acting.
