Read Romeo and Juliet and watch one of the following adaptations: Gnomeo & Juliet (2011), Chicken Rice
War (2000), Romeo Must Die (2000), Romeo + Juliet (1996), Romeo and Juliet(1968), Romeo and Juliet
(1966), West Side Story (1961), Romeo and Juliet (1954), Romeo and Juliet (1936).
Clearly identify two scenes from the written play that also appear in the film (however loosely) that you think
are significant to the overall story, and explain why.
Offer an assessment of how well you think the film portrayed the two scenes. In other words, was the film’s
portrayal of these two scenes effective or ineffective? Why?
Use at least two of the terms and concepts from the Learning Resources for the module explain why the
scenes portrayed in the film were effective or ineffective. For example, perhaps the film used specific music
and lighting in a scene to effectively emphasize the tension of the scene. Underline or bold the vocabulary,
concept or technique you use as an interpretative tool in your post.
Finally, give your overall opinion about how the themes of this play translate to our contemporary world and
why you think this play has had so many film adaptations
