Based on the play by WIlliam Shakespeare

The greatest love story ever told, Shakespeareís powerfully poetic and tragic tale of love and loss will steal your heart and leave you breathless. Transcending the hate of warring factions, in defiance of their parents and in secrecy from their closest friends, two young, star-crossed lovers risk all they have to be together. However, the same passion that stirs the loversí hearts also fuels the wrath of their feuding families and exacts heart-rending results.
