Two girls are eating lunch together. One notices a bit of food on the others’ cheek and wipes it off. As small a gesture as this may seem for some, the interaction means much more from a developmental and social standpoint.

Iconic tragedy adapted once more for the screen

First, there was the classic Zeffirelli version. Thirty years later, there was the Leonardo DiCaprio one we try to avoid speaking about. And now a third Romeo and Juliet movie, which premiered Oct. 11, has attempted to marry the tradition of the 1968 film with the gaudy appeal of other adaptations. Romeo and Juliet is, […]
