In Baz Luhrmann’s ambitious adaptation, the age old Capulet-Montague feud is reimagined as an LA gang war. But while some sequences where shot in the City of Angels, the bulk of the movie was filmed in Mexico, a country with its own vivid gang culture. It’s also the home to spectacular places like Mexico City’s Chapultepec Castle, and it’s here that the picture finds a way back to the original text. For the stately 18th-century home effortlessly brings to mind the palaces of Verona. Leo, meanwhile, is so pretty that, were we in Elizabethan times, the odds are he’d have played Juliet, not Romeo.
