I had no clue what this movie was even about (except from a few ideas from the trailer), but I was happily surprised at the heartwarming story. In fact, I loved it so much that I re-watched it again the next day...

It features Romeo’s first love, Rosaline, and other characters from the original play. However, this post isn’t just that… You’ll see!...
