Shakespeare : Teen Takes

If the news of Emile Hirsch doing Hamlet is interesting to you, then perhaps you might want to go hunt down some of these “teen remakes” of Shakespeare.  Nothing regular readers haven’t seen before, but a nice collection with YouTube snippets from each.

I don’t think that Luhrman’s Romeo+Juliet is in the same company as “She’s The Man”,  one being a modern interpretation and the other more of an “inspired by / retelling”.  But that’s getting picky.  I’ve always said, the more interest people show in Shakespeare, the better. Even if it is just to go see the hot young celebrities.
