Juliet and Romeo survive. Banished to Renaissance Florence, their love is tested by seductive painters, hot courtesans, rich princes, seductive rogues, lascivious nuns, the cruel Inquisition, poverty, and other unendurable realities. The historical background is accurate and oddly similar to our modern world of wealth and poverty, political power and religious fanaticism, but also beauty, art, and the hope that love offers. Highly romantic, pro-female, and appealing to teens and up, this requires two great leads and a strong supporting cast for the rich secondary roles. Like "Pirates of the Caribbean" or reboot versions of "Sherlock Holmes", there should be clear references to modern life, flamboyance, music, color, a sense of period – but all delivered by the wild techniques of modern cinema.
