Romeo and Juliet from Entertainment in February

From the creator of the Golden Globe winning series Downton Abbey comes Shakespeare’s timeless love story. The most passionate and tragic tale of Romeo and his Juliet is captured for a new generation by an all-star lineup, breathing new life into the names of the most famous lovers of all time.

Starring Douglas Booth (‘Great Expectations’, LOL) as Romeo and Academy Award nominee Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) as Juliet, Romeo & Juliet is adapted for the big screen by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes and directed by Carlo Carlei. Produced by Ileen Maisel, Lawrence Elman, Simon Bosanquet, Julian Fellowes, Doug Mankoff, Andrew Spaulding, Nadja Swarovski, Alexander Koll and Dimitra Tsingou.

The families of Montague and Capulet use any excuse to publicly fight in the streets of Verona so Romeo and Juliet are dismayed to learn that their new loves are of the rival family. Romeo tries to conspire a way to pursue Juliet without incurring the wrath of his family, while Juliet relies on her nurse to discreetly deliver messages to her love. But the bad blood between the two families is too strong. As the lovers grow more desperate, Friar Laurence attempts to hatch a plan that will allow them to be together forever.

Romeo & Juliet will be released by Entertainment in Video on DVD & Blu-Ray on 3rd February 2014.
