Romeo & Juliet

Part of Streamdoor: theatre you can watch from home


Romeo and Juliet risk everything to be together. In defiance of their feuding families, they chase a future of joy and passion as violence erupts around them.

This bold new film brings to life the remarkable backstage spaces of the National Theatre in which desire, dreams and destiny collide to make Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way.

Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, Judy) and Josh O’Connor (The Crown, God’s Own Country) play Juliet and Romeo. The award-winning cast includes Tamsin Greig, Fisayo Akinade, Adrian Lester, Lucian Msamati, Deborah Findlay.

Critic reviews

Jessie Buckley and Josh O’Connor are outstanding

The Guardian

Josh O'Connor and Jessie Buckley dazzle in the paciest, raciest Romeo and Juliet in decades

The Telegraph

He two hours' traffic of the stage has become 90 helter-skelter minutes on screen, neither conventional movie nor filmed stage production

The Arts Desk

Love in the darkness

The Sunday Times

A terrific achievement all round


Josh O’Connor and Jessie Buckley star in an exquisitely tactile production that’s lacking in depth

The Independent
