Throwback Movie Day - Romeo and Juliet - Leo and Claire

Hello Lovelies,


It's time for one of my new favorite features... throwback movie day! Today's fantastic throwback pic for your delightful viewing and remembering pleasure is 1996's Romeo and Juliet -- swoon. This movie is a divisive sort of classic, either you loved the directors creative twist on the classic story in a semi-modern venice, or you absolutely hated it. I my friends, fall into the category of absolutely loving it. 


Let me assure you I still remember every single word to every single song on the soundtrack... and although I'm ashamed to admit it took me so long to discover them, I have this album to thank for my long and deep seated appreciation of Radiohead!
















This image is forever engrained on my imagination... in my young mind when this film was released I thought it was so edgy and daring...



And of course, the story of two star crossed lovers has been a classic for generations... personally I'm a big fan of my generation's take on the classic tragedy!

Leo looks so young here! I was just talking yesterday about how he can never seem to be in a bad movie! His newest, Inception, is pretty much the best movie ever!
