You are going to watch the movie and read the play out of your Literature textbooks. Shakespeare was a great writer and and we learn a lot from his writing. They are two immature teenagers who are without common sense and by falling in love, have created a very dangerous situation for themselves and their families. If you read the play, you will see that Shakespeare too questioned the unfairness of life. Instead students should be studying modern literature that has meaning but is not outdated like Shakespeare.
