Interesting facts Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare that Baz Lurhman made a modern representation of. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes as Romeo and Juliet. Even though the film is a modern representation, it’s still roughly using the original script, which means that the English they speak is from the 1600s. Lurhman does a good job keeping the script as original as possible. An example of this is that even though the characters are carrying modern firearms, they refer to them as swords, just like Shakespeare did in the original script.
Romeo also kills Juliet’s cousin Tybalt soon after they marry and their story escalates into an intense conflict and Romeo is forcibly exiled. In fact Juliet even goes as far as to poison herself to attempt to protect their young marriage. This is a show of how dramatic young love can be when the chance if it going anywhere is very small. The play Romeo and Juliet is a story of how their rushed young love is torn apart by the feud and fighting between the Montague and Capulet families. With the feud between Romeo and Juliets opposite families, one could say that their young love is set up to fail before it even begins.
Lord Capulet said, “But woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart./ My will to her consent is but a part” (Shakespeare I.ii.16-17). However, later in the play, Lord Capulet was very upset that Juliet had refused to marry Paris, saying, “Unworthy as she is, that we have wrought/ So worthy a gentleman to be her bride?... But fettle your fine joints ‘gainst Thursday next / To go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church/ Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither” (III.v.144-145, 153-155). Because Lord Capulet had changed his mind about the marriage, he forced Juliet into a situation that was hard to get out of. As a result, Juliet was so repulsed by the idea of marrying Paris since she had had the chance to fall in love with Romeo.
Characteristics of Lady Capulet In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet’s mother is Lady Capulet. Throughout the whole story, Lady Capulet wants Juliet to marry Paris.

Lord Capulet is the one that threw the party where Romeo met Juliet. Lord Capulet should have had Juliet meet Paris in private where they could only fall in love with each other. If Lord Capulet had let his daughter remain unmarried, then Paris would not have been involved at all. If Capulet had let Juliet find love on her own, then Paris would not have died. Lord Capulet refused to pay attention to Juliet when she said that she did not want to marry Paris, so Juliet felt the need to fake her own death in order to be with Romeo, this led to Juliet being in the tomb where Paris went to visit her, met Romeo, and was killed.
However, the story of Romeo and Juliet is set in the Italian city Verona. The situation for women was even worse in Verona. It was a male-dominated city where women didn’t have independency. Much like in England, women in Verona were supposed to be protected- constrained, really- by men (Jenna). In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare portrayed this male-dominant situation in Verona realistically.
