Romeo and Juliet (I Wanna Be Claire Danes) recreates the final scene of Baz Luhrmann's movie adaptation of Romeo and Juliet in which she acts the roles of both Romeo and Juliet. With a mixture of irony, seduction, and painful sincerity, she portrays the characters as isolated from each other. Each character has her moment of cinematic self-indulgent drama, then each one ends her life.
