Romeo + Juliet (1996) Trivia: In 1994, one year before principal photography began, Leonardo DiCaprio flew to Australia on his own dime to film a workshop with director Baz Lurhmann in order to explore the idea of a modern Romeo and Juliet and see if the concept could actually work.

Romeo’s goodbye speech (1996 version)

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet. ‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy, thou art thyself though not a Montague. What is Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot, nor arm, nor face, nor any other part belonging to a man. Oh, what’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet; so Romeo would, were he not Romeo called, retain that dear perfection to which he owes without that title. Romeo, doff thy name! And for thy name, which is no part of thee, take all myself.
