“Romeo and Juliet” is a story about teen-age love, marriage, and suicide. It is also about a family feud in which young men fight and kill each other without knowing what the feud is about. And it is about parents so self-involved that they ignore their daughter's desperation, and refuse to listen to her plea for time. Because of her parents' hard heartedness, Juliet follows a more dangerous path then she would otherwise have done: a path that leads indirectly to her death.
