Movie Preview: “Romeo & Juliet,” adapted by Mr. “Downton Abbey”

“True Grit’s” Hailee Steinfeld is the Juliet here. Douglas Booth is her Romeo.
Note that this trailer to the Julian Fellowes adaptation lets our girl ride — a horse — and well.
Paul Giamatti makes a promising Friar Lawrence. It looks gushy and tragic. On the nose, in other words.

    R.I.P. Milo O’Shea, who was 1968’s Friar Lawrence in Zefferelli’s “Romeo and Juliet.” It took 45 years for someone who could follow his act, Paul Giamatti.
