Ah, what forbidden young love burns! Such tragedy! In an era where reality show relationships and celebrity couplings seem to weigh on the population with more resonance that their actual connections with real people, how will Shakespeare's classic of doomed romance be received? We can't imagine tweenagers swarming to this latest period attempt at "Romeo & Juliet," especially without the pop-frenzy heat of Baz Luhrmann's gonzo version from 1996. And Douglas Booth isn't exactly Leonardo DiCaprio.

Why does the story of "Romeo & Juliet" continue to resonate hundreds of years after it was first written? Well, it turns out that Bill Shakespeare was onto something as teens and tortured, yearning romance go together like peanut butter and chocolate, and the fundamental story is so good it can be reinvented no small amount of ways and still resonate.

The Great Gatsby
This weekend, “The Great Gatsby,” Baz Luhrmann’s overstuffed piñata of a literary adaptation, opens everywhere (read our review). Leonardo DiCaprio stars as the mysterious mogul Jay Gatsby, with Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, the object of his very intense desire. Anyone who has taken a freshman literature course (um, spoiler alert?) knows that the central love story of “The Great Gatsby” doesn’t exactly end well, but even more alarming is the fact that within the career of Mr DiCaprio this seems to be what a therapist would describe as “a definite pattern.” Over the years leo has been embroiled in a quite shocking array of cinematic trysts that ended in absolute catastrophe.

Paul Giamatti has pretty much done it all. Drama, comedy, horror, satire, action and hell, even musicals (if you don't remember "Duets" he's also in the forthcoming "Rock Of Ages"). But Shakespeare? Looks like he's gonna cross that one off his list too.

Already at a young age, Kodi Smit-McPhee has an eye for interesting, complex material. The actor first broke out starring alongside Viggo Mortensen in John Hillcoat's grim "The Road," and last year he shone in Matt Reeves' "Let Me In" as vulnerable Owen who discovers his beautiful neighbour played by Chloe Moretz, is also a vampire. Not to mention, he's also got a part in Ari Folman's upcoming sci-fi/animation hybrid "The Congress." Well the young thesp is set to stand opposite another up-and-coming actress in his next film.
