ELA 9 Feb 2-5/17 Comparison Viewing – Selecting a Second R&J Text
You’ve already watched and analyzed the Baz Luhrmann version of Romeo and Juliet, cast with Leonardo DiCaprio and Clare Danes as the leads. Some of you could identify elements of that film interpretation that you liked, but for the most part many of you disliked that film version.
The next part of our R & J study is to select a second video text and complete the same analysis as your previous watching activity. You will eventually compare your notes from the two films you’ve watched and create a visual presentation of your findings/conclusions.
Options for Viewing # 2: There are lots!
We talked previously about the option of watching exact replicas of the Romeo and Juliet story or watching an adaptation of the original Shakespeare play. Whichever you prefer, it’s your choice.
Option A: Exact Replicas: formatted from movies and stage versions
Television Version (Part 1 & 2)
Stage/Live Performance Version 1
Stage/Live Performance Version 2
Movie Version 2013
Adapted Versions: in movie format
