Shakespeare wrote Juliet as 13, Romeo a little older. But surely not as old as Orlando Bloom, 36, when he made his Broadway debut in the role last year?
Directed by David Leveaux, this film of the stage show is clunky, with sudden close-ups that seem out of place.
Competent rather than vivid or compelling.
OK, it's not Baz Luhrmann-inventive, but Bloom's playful Romeo and Condola Rashad's sweetly virginal Juliet are beautiful to watch.
The thoughtful translation from the Broadway boards to the cinema screen and well-chosen leads makes this for a better than average adaptation.
The lovers' first scene together is moving, while performances by Jayne Houdyshell (the nurse) and Christian Camargo (Mercutio) growl with intelligence.
The director does a good job finding the shallow notes of youth and fleshing some humour from these old bones, but the burning love nut never gets roasted to perfection.
