About the book:

Award-winning director Baz Luhrmann ( Strictly Ballroom) has updated Shakespeare's classic tragedy of young love and teen suicide in a unique new film, in which the warring Capulets and Montagues are gangsters who carry guns instead of swords. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio ( What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Basketball Diaries) and Claire Danes ( My So-Called Life, Little Women) as the doomed lovers, the film is set in a modern city. The actors speak Shakespeare's words--but with their own American accents.

Readers can now experience this new vision of Shakespeare's violent, tragic play alongside the Bard
s original text, in a special single volume that features an introduction by the film's director.
