People are used to the fact that musicians and singers find their way into cinema industry either as actors or soundtrack providers of any kind. We see them in musical films like we have recently witnessed with Christina Aguilera or they can be involved in the background work. Elton John has had this project in which he would compose a modernized and cute version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
This cuteness definitely comes from the animated gnomes and the other garden inhabitants being the main characters of this funny film titled Gnomeo and Juliet. It is produced by Sir Elton John and the beautiful songs in the film are his work, too. Putting together a well known and admired plot, cute characters, nice animation, great voice acting and music together; and there is a very entertaining film which would deserve to be kept in the archives!
The film is directed by Kelly Asbury, the experienced art and animation supervisor for films like The Little Mermaid, Nightmare Before Christmas, Madagascar 2, Kung Fu Panda, and Toy Story. He also directed Shrek 2 and his track record indicates the movie goers hoping to find a nice animation film will be utterly satisfied. The film stars Emily Blunt as Juliet and James McAvoy as Gnomeo. Especially McAvoy’s fans have been going crazy about this film for his all cuteness would be reflected in the sweet gnomes. The plot refers to the usual feud storyline of Romeo and Juliet but it has no content such as suicide, drug use or any other violent drama. The messages it wants to deliver to especially children is pretty clear and harmless.
Fans of Elton John and Lady Gaga should not miss this film, as well, for they have a brilliant duet named Hello Hello! in the film which was pretty difficult to make due to Lady Gaga’s busy tour schedule. However, the result is nothing short of breathtaking and it can be easily said that this film is worth every second you spend on it.
