Private Romeo, DVD


Innovative adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' set in an all-male military academy.

Following on from the success of Baz Luhrmann's 'Romeo and Juliet' (1996), which transplanted the original dialogue of the play into a modern setting and aesthetic, the film sticks closely to the Shakespearean text while telling of the love, loss and conflict between a group of young men.

Eight male cadets, including Josh (Hale Appleman) and Ken (Charlie Barnett), inhabit the military school and find their lives fused with the spirit of Shakespeare's most famous tragedy.
