In Romeo and Juliet and Street love there are conflicts that challenge the two lovers love for each other from the ever growing feuded families in Verona to Damien's family against his love for Junice who they think is a bad influence based on what she has been through. Throughout both texts the male characters have very similar reactions when they both lay eyes on their lovers for the first time. I Romeo and Juliet Romeo’s reaction to seeing Juliet is very detailed and strong. “Oh, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear, Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows. The measure done, I’ll watch her place of stand, And, touching hers, make blessèd my rude hand. Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.” (I.iiiii. 43-51) Romeo’s thoughts are passionate and it is clear that he is already in love. After Damien had just laid eyes on Junice his feelings were expressed in a very similar way. “I don't know what she thinks of if she thinks of anything so profound that it would interest me. And i'm not a snob but she's a depth I have not sounded. I wonder what a movie of her life would be what images come to fill the screens of her mind?” Another

This was an extraordinary movie that showed the homely small-town moral values through glossy studio production. I really enjoyed this movie. It has very quickly become one of my favorite movies of all times. The characters were very good. I thought this movie to be beautifully told and acted, with Reed, Barrymore, and other ensemble members perfectly cast. The actors were very convincing. George Bailey was an ordinary guy. An example of this was went he was at the train station waiting for his brother, Harry. He said, "Do you know what the three most exciting sounds in the world are?…Hanker chains, plane motors, and train whistles." He appreciated small things like that. I think that Jimmy Stewart played the role of George

Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet has been reimagined many times across different mediums. One interpretation that stands out among the rest is Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 film of the same name.
