Body Piercing. Kinky Sex. Dismemberment. The Things That Made Shakespeare Great!“A fun mix of Shakespeare, lesbian sex, lacerations and Motörhead… It’ll give you more info on making an independent movie than a year of film school…”- Jordan Harper, Riverfront Times
The first film written by James Gunn, who went on to write 2004’s Dawn of the Dead and write/direct Slither, Tromeo & Juliet moves Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed love from 16th Century Verona to a crumbling modern day New York, where young Tromeo (Will Keenan) and Juliet (Jane Jenson) must defy their families endless feud in order to be together for eternity.
Featuring all the body piercing, kinky sex, car crashes and dismemberment that Shakespeare always wanted but never had, Tromeo & Juilet is the most subversive and original literary adaptation ever put on screen!
