A repressive boys' boarding school becomes the setting for a powerful and unorthdox reenactment of Shakespeare's immortal tale of doomed lovers breaking tradition, seeking forbidden desires, and painfully coming of age. This high-voltage, all-male adaptation of Romeo and Juliet becomes a provocative examination of adolescents declaring war on all the "thou shalt nots" in their stifling world.
"Hot-blooded...wrenching...[it] pulsates with an adolescent abandon and electricity of which Romeo might approve."
