Newt's movie review

This is arguably the best R&J on film. The only change I would make would be to have a sob-double for Hussey because that girl cannot sob at all. Other than that, it was delightful. The camera work was brilliant, the crowd scenes and fights were grand, Rome was the perfect setting, the Nurse was properly funny, and the story stays close to the original. This is the one to watch.
