Romeo & Juliet, by William Shakespeare
Romeo and Juliet risk everything to be together. In defiance of their
feuding families, they chase a future of joy and passion as violence
erupts around them.
This bold new film brings to life the remarkable backstage spaces of the
National Theatre in which desire, dreams and destiny collide to make
Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way.
Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, Judy) and Josh O’Connor (The Crown, God’s Own
Country) play Juliet and Romeo. The award-winning cast includes Tamsin
Greig, Fisayo Akinade, Adrian Lester, Lucian Msamati, Deborah Findlay
