About the film
ROMEO + JULIET is a 1996 American romantic drama film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes in the leading roles. The film is an abridged modernization of Shakespeare’s play. While it retains the original Shakespearean dialogue, the Montagues and the Capulets are represented as warring mafia empires (with legitimate business fronts) and swords are replaced with guns (with brand names such as “Dagger” and “Sword”).
10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU is a 1999 American teen romantic comedy-drama film. It is directed by Gil Junger and stars Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The film, a modernization of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, is titled after a poem written by the film’s female lead (played by Stiles) to describe her bittersweet romance with the male lead (played by Ledger). The film was released March 31, 1999, and it was a breakout success for stars Stiles, Ledger and Gordon-Levitt.
