See the movie trailers and photos for Romeo & Juliet below. When Romeo (Booth) and Juliet (Steinfeld) “star crossed lovers” of two enemy families meet, forbidden love ensues. Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey, Gosford Park) adapts one of Shakespeare’s most enduring plays for a new generation.
In the fair city of Verona. Romeo (Douglas Booth) and Juliet (Hailee Steinfeld), the children of the feuding Montague and Capulet families, meet at a feast and fall deeply in love. Despite the sworn disdain their families hold for one another, they steal away and are secretly wed by Friar Laurence (Paul Giamatti). It is not long, however, before trouble ensues… Unaware of his daughter’s transgressions, Lord Capulet (Damian Lewis), Juliet’s father, has arranged for Juliet to take the hand of Count Paris (Tom Wisdom) in marriage. Devastated and defiant Juliet seeks the counsel of Friar Laurence, who concocts a devious plan that will alter the lives of both families forever.
