Romeo + Juliet

I'm constantly drawing inspiration from films.
I recently re-watched Baz Luhrmann's 1996 adaption of the Shakespearean classic, Romeo and Juliet.
The film is a modern take on the well-known love story.
The dialogue remains in it's original Shakespearean, but the rest of the film is portrayed in a strictly modern way. Gun slinging and pink hair on the Venice California boardwalk.

roses, rosaries, lit candles, gothic veils, fallen petals, Cathedrals, Italian love poems
midnight kisses, moonlight swims, confessions, obsession
lust, secrets, young love
