  1. A "Romeo and Juliet" tragedy of surprising power.
  2. Told so simply and powerfully that it seems to carry echoes of earlier, timeless tales.

    With Solomon & Gaenor, it is hard to overlook the folly of the characters. Does it count as a tragedy when the characters get more or less what they were asking for?
  4. The film is in the key of "Romeo and Juliet," and it's a one-note tune.
  5. Well-meaning portrait of intolerance concludes as grand tragic melodrama, executed with a stately beauty in somber colors.
  6. The landscape and the lovers are pretty to look at, but two households divided should really pack more of a punch.
  7. 30
    Paul Morrison's relentlessly unsurprising staging of a "Romeo and Juliet" story fetishizes its accelerating tragedies with morbid solemnity.
