Romeo & Juliet Trailer


It's trailerlicious around these parts. So another Romeo & Juliet adaptation, yes. But this one has Damian Lewis as Lord Capulet and Paul Giamatti as Friar Laurence, so I am very much going to be seeing it. Is it just me or is the actor who plays Romeo really sort of channeling Leonard Whiting from the Zeffirelli version? Not a bad thing, my friends. Not a bad thing at all. Due out October 13th, will you be seeing it?

  1. I hadn't heard about this, I'll definitely be seeing it! I really liked Romeo when he was Pip in Great Expectations.

    1. Me, too! I saw that he'd played Pip but I haven't seen it yet. Must rectify that.

    Ooooh I've had my eye on this trailer for about a month now. Hopefully the movie is as stunning as the trailer. I love seeing how all movie/play adaptions change the story in some little way, and am looking forward to see how Julian Fellows and the director interpreted the story. I'm also super excited for Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet. She looks gorgeous! Everyone I know hates Romeo and Juliet though, so I guess I'll be seeing it by myself. =(

    1. I don't know how I missed it until now. I've enjoyed Julian Fellowes' work so far, so I have high hopes. I know a lot of people scoff at R&J, but I have always loved it. Unabashedly. :)

    2. Speaking of book-movie-trailers, the first trailer for The Book Thief came out today (like literally a couple of hours ago). That film also looks amazing.

  5. I can't wait to see it! I too have always loved R&J - I own both the Zeffirelli version and the Luhrmann version on dvd. I especially like that they keep on using Zola Jesus's song "Skin" in the trailers for this one (IMHO, the first trailer they released is better than the one you put up).

    This is the first time I've seen this trailer and it looks good. I'll be willing to watch it if I remember by the time it comes out. LOL.

    1. It's funny when a new adaptation comes out and you see the trailer and realize, yeah, I am totally up for a new take on that story again. :)

    I was wondering why the actor playing Romeo looked so familiar! (I did see him in Great Expectations, but I kept feeling as if I knew him from something else, something much older.)

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo

Angie's Best Books of 2020

 It is the last day of the year. Of this year specifically. "Well done," is all have to say if you're reading this. Well done, you. It's been quiet for awhile now around these parts. For obvious reasons. But I've been reading continuously and ever so gratefully. I have felt such a profound sense of gratitude this year for all of the creators in this world who have been tirelessly and so lovingly creating art for all of us. We have needed it so much. I have needed it so much. And this year of all years, the creation of art has felt like such a fierce act of love. So thank you. And so here I leave my best books of the year. My list stands at fourteen titles. And that feels just right. photo by @aamith (in the order in which I read them) A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane Slippery Creatures by K.J.
