In the latest iteration of our live film score series Fin de Cinema, we bring you our most contemporary selection yet: Baz Luhrmann’s cinematic adaptation of Romeo + Juliet from 1996. Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio star in this seductive, splendid and intensely passionate piece of sublime anachronism, where the Shakespearean vernacular crash-lands into the mouths of rival gang members in the ’90s, in the imagined SoCal vacation town “Verona Beach”.
Taking you on this larger-than-life POP journey are some fine up-and-coming groups: deconstructed hip-hop / free jazz savants GRAMMIES (feat. members of local R&B heavyweight Shy Girls), nationally blog-adored and utterly charming future-R&B boy band MAGIC FADES, and the textured and immersive ‘scapes of Vaporwave artist SOUL IPSUM.
