Gnomeo and Juliet
One of my most favorite adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays is Gnomeo and Juliet; an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet…lawn gnome style. The movie is also filled with many other references to Shakespeare’s plays like A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet, Macbeth, and so on despite its main adaptation, which is what I really love it.
The film, much like its adapted play, focuses on the feud between the Redbrick (Capulets) and the Bluebery (Montague). Gnomeo and Juliet find love despite their family’s hatred for each other and their love conquers all…which is not the same tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet. It is after all, a film for children.
