Introduction

Review of Romeo and Juliet film At the beginning of the film the poem starting with a TV reporter on TV reading the poem which starts 'two households both alike in dignity'. this poem sets the scene for the film and tells how the Montagues and Capulets don't get on because of the 'two households' part in the poem. Also the Capulet and Montague buildings are shown as high rises on the opposite side of the street. After this they read the poem again showing bits on modern day accessories e.g. newspaper.

Benvolio says that if he was left alone to talk with Romeo then he might be able to sort out his worries. Romeo tells Benvolio that hes in love but doesn't know what to do, he doesn't think that his love loves him. He's quite confused and when he sees the brawl that his cousin has been in then he cant understand why everyone cant love each other, why do people hate? ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
