Romeo and Juliet (12A)

Shot on a single stage in an empty theatre over 17 days during the global pandemic, the National Theatre make Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way.

Romeo (Josh O’Connor) and Juliet (Jessie Buckley) risk everything to be together. In defiance of their feuding families, they chase a future of joy and passion as violence erupts around them. This bold new film brings to life the remarkable backstage spaces of the National Theatre in which desire, dreams and destiny collide.

  • CAST: Jessie Buckley, Josh O’Connor, Tamsin Greig, Fisayo Akinade, Adrian Lester, Lucian Msamati, Deborah Findlay
