Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, Judy) and Josh O’Connor (The Crown, God’s Own Country) play Juliet and Romeo in this critically acclaimed bold new film.

Romeo and Juliet risk everything to be together. In defiance of their feuding families, they chase a future of joy and passion as violence erupts around them. Bringing to life the remarkable backstage spaces of the National Theatre, Romeo and Juliet highlights the ways in which desire, dreams and destiny collide to make Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way. 

The award-winning cast includes Tamsin Greig, Fisayo Akinade, Adrian Lester, Lucian Msamati and Deborah Findlay.

"National Theatre's first film is an ingenious triumph - ★★★★★" - Arifa Akbar, The Guardian
