Storyline

Capulet becomes Cappell, and Montague becomes Monroe in yet another modernized adaptation of Shakespeare's classic "Romeo & Juliet." This time, the adult family members are feuding by way of a mayoral election, while Ronnie & Julie are the ice-skating lovers (he in hockey, and she as a figure skater.)

Even an old classic has to evolve
20 July 2018 | by mahindaradioSee all my reviews

The idea is not to get side tracked by indifferent reviews. A review needs to be truthful and not a journey to the past epitomizing the original, then it does not do justice to a work of art. Ronnie and Julie is a version using the Old Master's plot, but departing from the tragedy to the happy ending. That is what Dream Merchants are for. All in all, very enjoyable
