Shakespeare Modernized The RIGHT Way. Kenneth Branagh Is THE GREATEST.

When I was forced to watch the ill-titled "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet" starring Leonardo DiCaprio, I thought, " 'West Side Story' did a better job. I've already seen Kenneth Branagh's 'Henry V,' 'Dead Again,' 'Much Ado About Nothing,' 'Mary Shelley's Frankenstein' and 'Hamlet.' I LOVED all those so I'll give this one a shot." I did and I don't regret it. I admit, when I read the play, I couldn't concieve of a time in which the play should be set. Kenneth Branagh proved his mastery of Shakespeare once again, which is rivalled only by the great Sir Laurence Olivier. I have only one note of caution. There is a suggestive dance sequence, but contains no nudity. Wit that warning, I leave it up to the discretion of parents to decide the film's suitability for kids. Not Rated.
