This is probably the most famous love story ever. This couple has become a synonym for love itself. Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. Their love story is very tragic. The tale of two teenagers from two feuding families who fall in love at first sight and then marry causing all sorts of skullduggery and turmoil leading in heartbreaking suicide/accidental death. Their “untimely deaths” ultimately unite their feuding households.
I think my favourite adaptation though is the sublime Baz Lurhmann movie with Leonardo and Clare Danes.
