This bold new film brings to life the remarkable backstage spaces of the National Theatre in which desire, dreams, and destiny collide to make Shakespeare's romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way. Romeo and Juliet risk everything to be together. In defiance of their feuding families, they chase a future of joy and passion as violence erupts around them. Oscar-nominee Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, Judy) and Emmy-winner Josh O'Connor (The Crown, God's Own Country) play Juliet and Romeo. The award-winning cast includes Tamsin Greig, Fisayo Akinade, Adrian Lester, Lucian Msamati, Deborah Findlay.
