High drama in trailer for Carlos Carlei's adaptation of Romeo And Juliet
Douglas Both as Romeo and Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet in Romeo And Juliet
It’s been a while since anyone’s attempted to pull off a film adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic doomed love story Romeo & Juliet. We suspect it’s because Baz Luhrmann did such a bang up job of it back in the 90’s that many have been simply too terrified to try and better it. However, with Douglas Booth and Paul Giamatti among the stars, director Carlo Carlei is probably confident that his 2013 version of the ancient play has the chops to do the original script justice especially with the Oscar winning 'Downton Abbey' creator Julian Fellowes adapting the screenplay.
Featuring the welcome voice of Zola Jesus on the backing soundtrack, the extended trailer for Carlei’s work has been revealed and apart from revealing that almost all the young actors in it are impossibly pretty, it also has a touch of a gothic feel about it, with dark shades adorning most of the clips shown and the infamous masked ball focused on as the first place the pair meet. 'Gossip Girl' star Ed Westwick also makes an appearance in the movie as the vengeful cousin of Juliet, Tybalt in his first role since leaving the show.

Nika Roza Danilova has been making music all her life, from classical and opera through her childhood to her current guise as singer, songwriter and all round creator of Zola Jesus via a stint with Jamie Stewart's Former Ghosts project in-between. Although still only twenty years of age, Danilova has written an incredible number of songs in such a short of space of time culminating in the imminent release of her third long player ('Conatus') in as many years next month. While first record 'The Spoils' hinted at the possibilities Zola Jesus could achieve, last year's excellent follow-up 'Stridulum II' really set the cat among the pigeons, highlighting its creator as not only a precocious songwriting talent but also an arranger of considerable virtuosity in the process.

you can observe human behavior from a safe distance, always sprint removed, like you're in a submarine unnoticed

hot tip: shostakovich is a surprisingly effective running soundtrack
cities such as sofia or baku have a musical history much richer than most places in western europe. they shouldn't go unrecognized.
