Today marks the twentieth anniversary of the modernized Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo Dicaprio and Claire Danes.  This is one of the most famous, tragic love stories by William Shakespeare.

Baz Luhrmann directed this adaptation of the infamous love story from 1996, with a modern day twist.  This is a good movie to watch to better understand Shakespearean language.  If you have not seen this movie yet, this is one to see and you can see a young Leonardo DiCaprio.
