The most stylish and gorgeously art directed film of the 90s had a man in drag lip sync to "Young Hearts Run Free," a house party at Chapultepec Castle and a lot of old English puns. Somewhat surprisingly though... Claire and Leo weren't hired just because they're both pretty.
I studied this in depth visually for my English GCSE and comparing it to the text Luhrmann had some interesting aesthetic concepts. But essentially it just does not work in my opinion, it's chaotic and the second half is poor. Clare Danes is one of my least favourite actresses I find her insufferable.
