Juliet? is a short film that crystalizes a moment of ignorant bliss, anxiety, and dramatic irony. By focusing on the events leading up to, rather than the catastrophic ending of Romeo and Juliet, a new dimension is added to the mythical characters. The title Juliet? was chosen to express the exact second of realization, agony, and shock when the film ends.
