Welp, Hailee Steinfeld Tackles Her First Sex Scene In Romeo & Juliet

Yes, the Leo DiCaprio and Claire Danes version helped define an era, and yes, there is nothing more classic than the '69 Zeffirelli version which is perhaps the paragon of Shakespearean tragedy on film, but...Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth, y'all.
And Damian Lewis. And Paul Giamatti. Also, Ed Westwick as Tybalt? Brilliant. Plus the kid from Let Me In? And then, it's written by Downton Abbey's Julian Fellowes and involves Zola Jesus playing in the background? Is this too much teenage lust to be contained in one trailer? (Answer: No. No, it is not.)
Hailee Steinfeld's Juliet seems much more sweetly naive, in the vein of the ethereal Olivia Hussey rather of the edgier Claire Danes. Truer to the original text, for sure, but tell us: Do you prefer your teen dramas with a heavier dose of brooding than what we're seeing here?
