Kenneth Branagh reunites his Cinderella stars for a modern version of the Bard's great tragedy. Young lovers Romeo (Richard Madden) and Juliet (Lily James) are caught up in a longstanding feud between Verona's Montague and Capulet families. Their inability to profess their love openly leads to tragedy. Following the huge success of The Winter's Tale with Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh brings this brilliant modern vision of Shakespeare's heartbreaking masterpiece to the stage. If you missed the original live event, this re-broadcast is your chance to catch Romeo And Juliet at your local Cineworld once more. Branagh's passionate modern production will delight enthusiasts and reach out to younger audiences by reuniting key cast members from his box office smash film version of Cinderella. Richard Madden and Lily James take the lead roles, while the great Sir Derek Jacobi is cast as Mercutio. Madden's other credits include Robb Stark in Game of Thrones, while Lily James won fame for her role as Lady Rose MacClare in Downton Abbey.
