I’ve heard mixed reviews, but I’m going in with an open mind.  I loved the 1996 adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, and did not feel as though anything was lost on the creative freedom that was taken.  I am bringing a handful of 9th grade Honors students with us, but we have not read the novel as a class.  I provided them with a plethora of background information and pleas to read the book.

Hopefully they will enjoy it as well.  My review of the film to follow, although how can you go wrong with this guy:
