It doesn't matter how many times I watch it, I just keep waiting for Juliet to reach out and touch Romeo's hand when she first comes out of her death sleep. I sit on the edge of the couch, listening to Leo talk about how Claire is so beautiful that death cannot touch her and thinking that this time, things will be different. Romeo will get the letter and show up to Juliet's funeral with flowers in hand, ready to start a new life with his gorgeous bride.
I've watched Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet dozens of times, and I still hope that the ending will change. I still believe that the lovers they spy through the aquarium can be together.
