The purpose of this paper is to show the similarities and differences between these two tragic love stories. This happened the same in both the movie and play. Romeo, in the movie, sees the apothecary in Verona, where as Romeo sees him in Mantua, in the play. Romeo and Juliet seemed quite nonchalant in both the movie and play begin to comprehend the reality of who the other is.
The play and movie are both great but have their strengths and weaknesses.
Author: Brandon Johnson. At the Capulet party Romeo and Juliet meet. Some major inconsistencies occur, such as Mercutio dying at a beach, portrayed as a hero, instead of being at a bar, looking like a fool, Friar Lawrence's letter is successfully sent to Romeo by mail carriers, however he does not have the opportunity to read it, unlike in the play version, where Romeo does not get the letter from Friar John, a Juliet stands on her balcony, innocently murmuring about her meeting with Romeo while the very subject of her musings eagerly climbs the garden wall and trellis leading up to the object of his love, Juliet.
Everyone has their own love, and their of definition of what love actually means. The efforts meet with devastating ending, including the deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt, as well as the tragic demise of Romeo and Juliet.
