Shakespeare forever: from West Side Story to The Lion King, because cinema cannot do without the Bard
Judging from the trailer, Rosaline focuses on comic tones, with the protagonist doing everything possible to put a spoke in the wheels of the two newly-lovers and scoffs at Juliet’s grand plan to fake her death in one of the most famous works of Shakespeare. To underline the presence of Minnie Driver as Rosaline’s sarcastic housekeeper.
