Baz Luhrmann’s ostentatious style rockets the lovers of Verona into the 20th century in this beloved adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

While Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes may be doomed as the ill-fated couple on different sides of an interfamily conflict, the film buzzes with life and colour — the saturated MTV-esque visuals are complemented brilliantly by an iconic ’90s soundtrack. There are certain films that come to define a generation: the years have made it clear that Romeo + Juliet is one of those movies.
