(1968) dir Franco Zeffirelli w/Leonard Whiting, Olivia Hussey, John McEnery [138 min]

Long before Kenneth Branagh or Julie Taymor, the go-to cinematic adaptor of Shakespeare was the romantic Italian director, Franco Zeffirelli. Zeffirelli’s sweeping, swooning version of one of the world’s greatest love stories is perfectly matched with Nino Rota’s score.
