The director of 'Strictly Ballroom' provides an exhilarating spin on the well-worn Shakespearean story, transporting it to 1990's Venice Beach, California, where the Montagues and Capulets are feuding criminal gangs of latins and hispanics. Loud, vulgar and perfectly in tune with the bard's anti-violence message.
