    parts well, especially during Romeo’s duel with Tybalt. In other words, Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes were incapable of showing any mood except enamored.

The idea of portraying the Capulets and Montagues as warring gangs was a clever idea and a perfect analogy for the actual Shakespearean play. Mercutio, Benvolio, and Tybalt all had their own flaring personalities which energized the movie.

In addition, the writers did a fantastic job of involving Romeo, even if he wasn’t present, in each scene. If a scene starred Benvolio and Mercutio, the duo would be looking for Romeo or defending the Montague gang.

I felt that if I got lost in my character, acting would be easier and I would naturally enunciate because playing Romeo melodramatically would give a…

  • Benvolio In William Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet

    Originally, Benvolio was chosen to be the least to blame for their deaths, and the reason for that is because he was the one in the play that told Romeo to attend the “Capulet’s feast”.
