From Romeo Juliet to 10 Things I Hate About Shakespeare adaptations of all time

Romeo + Juliet (1996)

Leonardo DiCaprio starred as Romeo and Claire Danes as Juliet in Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy. The film’s setting is a twist on the original: instead of Verona, Italy, events take place in a seaside metropolis called ‘Verona Beach’, which bears a resemblance to modern-day Miami and has been ravaged by the ongoing feud between the Capulets and Montagues. In true Luhrmann style, the film's vibrant costumes, excessive set design and well-curated soundtrack add to the magic of Shakespeare’s timeless story of star-crossed lovers.



The Tragedy of Macbeth (2021)

Amassing great critical acclaim after its release in 2021, The Tragedy of Macbeth received nominations for Best Cinematography and Best Production Design at the 94th Academy Awards, while Denzel Washington was nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars, Golden Globes and Critics' Choice Awards for his performance as Macbeth. Following the plot of the original 1606 folio, Macbeth becomes convinced by a trio of witches that he will become the next King of Scotland, and his ambitious wife, the notorious Lady Macbeth, played by Frances McDormand, supports him in his plan to seize power. This ominous retelling of the Scottish play is a black and white feast of stunning camera work and commendable acting. 

The King (2019)

Former couple Lily-Rose Depp and Timothée Chalamet met whilst starring alongside one another in this adaptation of Henry IV, Part 1, Henry IV, Part 2 and Henry V by William Shakespeare. Chalamet played King Henry V, whilst Depp took on the role of Catherine of Valois, the French woman who would become the monarch's wife. Loosely based on the writer’s work, the series was hailed as an ‘ahistorical dramatisation’, with some critics condemning its accuracy in relation to both the time it was set and Shakespeare's play. Expect swords, chainmail and medieval brutality in Chalamet’s debut historical drama - a treat for medieval and Shakespeare buffs alike.
