The ultimate love story: two crazy kids fall in love and kill themselves. I remember reading the play as a kid but I didn’t completely fall in love with the play until I watched Baz Lurhmann’s version of Romeo + Juliet (1996). I just couldn’t believe that the incredibly cute boy from Growing Pains, and that girl from My So-called Life was dead. Well, dead in the movie. Here’s why you must watch it again:
- Leonardo DiCarprio and Claire Danes, two adorable actors, when they both had baby faces.
- John Leguizamo as Tybalt. Doesn’t he have the perfect villain face?
- The soundtrack is great! I still listen to it to this day! Every overly-emotional girl (during time-of-month) in the ’90s overplayed it. I'm pretty sure!
- The infamous fish tank scene. It's super romantic. Like, Leo makes you believe love at first sight is possible. That first glance!
I've also heard, over the grape-vine, that Leonardo Dicarprio is purchasing a property in Sydney! The stalker in me rejoices!
