Released in 2011, Private Romeo was directed by Alan Brown and written by Alan Brown adapted from William Shakespeare’s famous play “Romeo and Juliet”. Re-telling the story of Romeo and Juliet but with two male characters, the film stars Seth Numrich and Matt Doyle. Read More Here

“Much better to focus on the tempestuous Mercutio (Hale Appleman, a standout), whose increasing volatility forms the perfect counterpoint to Mr. Doyle's beaming Juliet and Seth Numrich's sensitive Romeo. Punctuated by eerily static shots of empty basketball courts and deserted hallways, Mercutio's blustering menace is as timeless as the romance he seeks to derail. ”
   Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

“No contemporary film that promotes love instead of war should be overlooked. Private Romeo will undoubtedly be regarded by some as a curio, but it's a sweet, sympathetic and surprising one, highly recommended to the adventurous spirit in an enlightened and changing world.”
   Rex Reed, New York Observer

“Sticking closely to the written text (with basketballs and barbells supplying incidental props) and wisely not attempting to reimagine the specific circumstances that separate the lovers, a dynamite ensemble cast of young actors invests the Bard's poetry with energetic immediacy.”
   Ronnie Scheib, Variety
