The theme of Romeo and Juliet is love and violence. This movie is set in our modern time. The director did an exceptional job commingling the old text of senescent English to that of our newfangled lifestyle and dress.

Violence in the Middle Ages With all of the violence on television, one might wonder when and why the violence began. Violence began with the dawn of time.
