Private Romeo comes to DVD

Featuring a hot all-male cast and set in a military academy, Private Romeo’s fabulously homoerotic slant on the classic play makes it the most exciting adaptation of Shakespeare’s masterwork since Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet.

When eight cadets are left behind at an isolated military school, the greatest romantic drama ever written seeps out of the classroom and permeates their lives.

Incorporating the original text of Romeo And Juliet replete with the play’s most romantic, tender and also vicious moments, the classic story is treated to a decidedly modern twist via YouTube videos and lip-synced indie rock music. Private Romeo takes us on an intense, affectionate ride that only Shakespeare (and a group of the sexiest military men you’ve ever seen!) could have inspired.
