We're delighted to welcome director Paul Bucknor for an in-person Q&A following the film.

A vibrant, dynamic adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless romantic tragedy, with compelling performances and a delightful reggae soundtrack.

The story begins at an inner city Kingston secondary school, where an English teacher sets Romeo and Juliet as homework. One of his students is Dean (Dashawn Miller), a young carer with a lot on his plate: looking after his sick mum and working at the family food stall. By the time he gets round to reading the play, it’s the middle of the night and Dean is half asleep. But the story grips him; so much so that he plays it in his head, casting himself as Romeo and giving the role of fair Juliet to the girl he fancies from across the street.
