Romeo and Juliet starring Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth looks set to cause some serious heart palpitations, judging by the latest newly released clip from the film.
The new clip of Shakespeare’s timeless love story features the iconic balcony scene where Juliet – played by 16-year-old Hailee Steinfeld – looks on dreamily in a soft pink gown and white shawl.
Romeo – a smouldering Douglas Booth – says what every woman on the planet wants to hear (Loose translation: your eyes, your lips, your everything – is amazing).
Judging by how Douglas is pulling off the hooded cloak look in this scene, this film, directed by Carlo Garlei from a script adapted by Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes, is looking very promising indeed.
The clip concludes with Hailee uttering the immortal phrase: ‘O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo?’
This remake of the film sticks to the original period – unlike Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 phenomenal modern-day interpretation of the classic with Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio – and also stars Paul Giamatti, Stellan Skarsgård, Damian Lewis and Ed Westwick
