A month of duels: DiCaprio vs. Danes

Shakespeare performance aficionados, this is the one to watch. In Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet, in one corner you’ve got the riveting screen presence of Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Claire Danes’s superior command of Shakespearean language. DiCaprio captures your gaze, while Danes really makes you listen.

In my mind, this contest is a draw, but this is one of those  duels of clashing performance styles that ranks up there with James Dean and Raymond Massey in East of Eden.
