For the second part of our Valentine's weekend special, we bring you Baz Luhrmann's dazzling and unconventional adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic love story. Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes portray Romeo and Juliet, the youthful star-crossed lovers.

Against the urban backdrop of Verona Beach, California, the Montague and Capulet families are embroiled in a long-running feud.

When Romeo, a Montague, attends a Capulet ball in disguise, he falls in love with the beautiful Juliet. Although already engaged to Dave Paris, whom she does not love, Juliet vows to marry Romeo. They ask the kindly Father Laurence to perform the ceremony in secret, but bloodshed and tragedy threaten the couple's future together.

"For never was a story of more woethan this of Juliet and her Romeo."
