Kat Graham plays Julie, a lifelong Romeo and Juliet story fan. She and her fiance were off to Verona where she expects a proposal, but he dumps her the night before the flight. Julie carries on and lands in a villa carefully chosen to overlook Juliet’s Balcony, which she realises is a tourist trap built in the 30s; still Julie’s hopeful. There she is confronted by a handsome but obnoxious Englishman, played by Tom Hopper, already ensconced in her suite. A no-holds-barred battle of the sexes ensues in this light-hearted, gelato-infused rom-com and What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with the stars.
