Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare DVD - NEW & SEALED
STARRING: LAURENCE HARVEY, FLORA ROBSON and SUSAN SHENTALL
Winner of the Golden Lion Award - Venice Film Festival. Laurence Harvey and Susan Shentall star in Renato Castellani's breathtakingly original and powerful adaptation of William Shakespeare's masterpiece Romeo and Juliet.
A timeless story of forbidden love between two young members of the great rival houses of Verona, Romeo and Juliet is an epic romance unrivalled in literature and is brought to life here as never before.
Director Renato Castellani elected to shoot the film in Verona itself, setting the action against its beautiful historic buildings and shadow cloaked piazzas, to add a new and exciting realism to the story. No production before or since has looked so sumptuous or so authentic.
Unconventional, daring and fiercely original, Romeo and Juliet offers a totally fresh new approach to the Bard's most beloved play, and boasts a distinguished supporting cast which includes Flora Robson as the Nurse, Mervyn Johns as Friar Laurence, Bill Travers as Benvolio and Sebastian Cabot as Capulet. John Gielgud provides the prologue.
