ROMEO + JULIETJill Bilcock Edits
A whirlwind adaptation of the tragic tale of star-cross’d lovers, Romeo + Juliet is the epitome of 90s cool and cemented the firecracker collaboration between editor Jill Bilcock and director Baz Luhrmann.
Opening with a bold prologue that showcases the breathless pace and stylistic innovation that will follow, Luhrmann’s film is a thrilling reinvention of the Shakespearean tragedy. Leonardo DiCaprio and Clare Danes became the faces of a generation with their powerhouse performances in the title roles. The film was critically acclaimed upon release, with Bilcock receiving particular praise, and a slew of awards, for her rhythmic and fast-cutting editing.
