After the passage of Hurricane Dorian, the Bahamas is mounting a campaign to let travelers know they can return to most of its major cities, boosting a tourism industry that is critical to its recovery efforts — and that will surely take a hit. As Hurricane Dorian approached, the Orlando Sentinel dropped its paywall, providing free access to storm coverage. How did we make the decision and did it come soon enough?
Like many victims of the American education system, I had a dislike for Shakespeare years before I got my hands on anything he had written. His name was a password to be profaned by year-olds whose voices had started to change and who therefore had to act tough and cynical and, especially at 12, anti-intellectual. But part of the problem came later, in the classroom, where we inched through " Julius Caesar " and " Macbeth " at a velocity of ten lines an hour.
Director Carlo Carlei has confirmed that Hailee Steinfeld will not appear in any nude or lovemaking scenes in his upcoming adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. Earlier this week, a British tabloid reported that part of Julian Fellowes's script called for the year-old actress to be nude in one scene. It will be romantic and age-appropriate for a year-old.
With iconic moments such as the balcony scene, the deaths of Tybalt and Mercutio, and taunting of the Nurse, and the final tragic moments in the crypt, the story speaks as much in visual language as it does in Shakespeare's soaring, heartbreaking verse. The earliest record of the play on film is a French version from around -- a mere four years after the public exhibition of films began. Early Hollywood also embraced the work. InMetro Pictures with a version starring matinee idol Francis X.
For the second consecutive year, a Shakespeare pic, directed by Franco Zeffirelli, has received the nod. Taylor as his trump cards. This time, his calculated risk in starring two virtual unknowns, has misfired and the film suffers accordingly.
Star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet light up the silver screen again in Shakespeare's timeless tragedy. For those who skipped English Lit, the story is set in Verona, Italy, where the rival families of Montague and Capulet publicly fight in the streets. But, Romeo Douglas Booth of the Montagues has no interest in their ancient feud, especially after he meets and falls for Juliet Hailee Steinfelda Capulet, at a masked ball.
If asked to single out one moment which illustrates the value of dynamic contrast in music, I might choose 'Montagues and Capulets' from Prokofiev's ballet Romeo and Juliet. Within seconds, even a stranger to the story could have identified two key ingredients: tension, leading to explosive violence exemplified through crescendi soon culminating in huge, dissonant chords ; numbing, heart-breaking tragedy portrayed by near-directionless, yet unmistakably grave harmonies. This movement also contains the rangy, stalking theme which many will now associate with that monument to hubris, The Apprentice. The evening's engaging presenter Paul Rissman then embarked upon a brief and humorous history of the work.
She may be only fourteen years old, but it seems that Hailee Steinfeld will already be baring all in her next film role. In a move that is most likely going to spark controversy, it has been revealed that the True Grit star will appear naked for the next Romeo And Juliet adaptation, which she signed up to earlier in the year. Revealing: It has been revealed that Hailee Steinfeld, pictured here at the MTV Movie Awards tonight, will do a nude scene for the next Romeo And Juliet adaptation, which she signed up to earlier in the year.
The new version of "Romeo and Juliet" is getting a lot of negative heat lately thanks to the British tabloids. You may recognize Hailee for her Oscar nominated work in "True Grit". The rumored scene is scripted to have Romeo and Juliet undressing each other until they are both naked. Now, a 14 year old getting naked on set, that to me screams illegal.
