02 Romeo + Juliet: Teen Angst and Swimming Pools

Trusted or Busted

18-07-2023 • 46 mins

Three gay Xennials* embark on a nostalgic journey, revisiting beloved 90’s movies from the past. As we press play, a question lingers: will our memories stand strong and be trusted or are our recollections busted?

This week we drew Romeo + Juliet (1996) out of the R2D2 bucket and were very existed to be back in the realm of teenage angst and dramatic flair that Baz Luhrmann skilfully extracted from the enchanting duo of Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. What fun, and tragedy!
