Views on Baz Luhrman’s Adaptation of Romeo and Juliet

Capulet my name is confidential. My subject for the IOP is based upon the film ‘Romeo and Juliet by B Luhrmann. I am going to impersonate William Shakespeare with a monologue where I shall speak aloud my views on Baz Luhrman’s adaptation of my text.

When I composed this book I was drawing in a crowd with extremely orthodoxed thnking. the idea of 2 young enthusiasts breaking the society simply for desire was excruciating! hence in my book they died 4 days into their courtship. Death was their punishment for going against the knomes of the society. my book was a one with a major message presented to the reader.

Where as the film which was adjusted frm my text appears to be moulded inorder to attract an audience with a very openmindset state of mind who prefer entertainment over moral values. It had a numerous humourous scenes, mercutio dressing up like a woman and dancing at the capulets party, which the contemporary crowd would delight in more. The main goal of the this film was to earn money, which was done by mocking at my well known book of romeo and Juliet. adapting their motion picture from my book should have been a huge advantage for them as tthey wouldn’t require any script or a new story which has the threat of being disliked by the audience. hey just altered the outfits and situations into modern ones which will undoubtedly captivate the audience as they picture romeo as a young teenager in the days of old and not wearing a fit and smoking a cigarette on the beach. the motion picture has a many differnces compared to the book in order to make the movie more amusing. in my book Juliet was 14 years of ages but in the film Juliet doesn’t appear to be 14 at all. the movie makers altered this element of the book in their motion picture in order to make the scenes expressing lust more amusing for the crowd.

But the reason I had Juliet to be so young in the book was to highlight truth that her actions were all justified by the truth that she was immature. The outfits of the actors in the movie were very western and frequently worn by the individuals of the new times. in my book they were meant to be gown the method individuals did during the time of the book being published. instead of using the olden day clothes characters like benvolio were using hawaian t-shirts and romeo was dressed in a suit smoking cigarettes a cigarette on the beach. scenes like this weren’t typical to see in days when I wrote the book.

Rather of actually swords the charactes threatened each other with shinning handguns with the word “sword” carved on them. this element of the motion picture killed the severity as in the opening scene the capulets pointed a handgun at the montagues and bought him to raise his “sword”. How will two individuals have a dramatic battle holding 2 pistols versus each other? In my book this scene was expected to be a significant fight. The royal prince was changed by a cops authorities to make the movie more relative to the modern-day world.

The reason my book had a royal prince was to highlight he truth that these 2 lovers were going against the will of the greatest authority. the motion picture depicted the exact same scenario however the police official changing the prince is another example which I saw where barz luhrman has actually provided a change in the film for it to be resembling a contemporary life scenario. In 2 offices of the capulets and the montagues were displayed in the movie as high skyscrapers where as my book was geographically embeded in Verona which is supposed to be a small and silent town. Throughout the time when I wrote this book, writers and manufacturers would only produce works which provided some tips to make the audiences or readers to ponder over particular reality scenarios. however I think times have changed and so has the state of mind and the taste of the audience. they seem to enjoy mockeries rather of eye openers I feel barz luhrman has actually not been devoted to my text while depicting it as a mmovie due to the fact that the film simply mocks at the text if I had an alternative to produce a movie illustrating my text it would have been really various not altering any scenes for it to be enjoyed by the modern crowd.
