These violent delights have violent ends

Yes, I'm a little excited about this movie -- another adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.

I did notice Julian Fellowes has taken quite a few liberties with the text. And initial feedback isn't exactly promising. So maybe I'll hate the movie too.

Regardless, I'm sure I'll be there on opening night.

For those of you who've read my books, you know my affinity for Shakespeare.

Hamlet inspired Out of Breath.

Measure for Measure  inspired The Ghost Runner.

And Romeo and Juliet has inspired book three, which, I know, I know, is still as of yet untitled.

Maybe if I watched fewer movies I'd get more writing in.

PS: I do love the actress Hailee Steinfeld. I could see her playing Kat.
