Who is to blame?
The story of star-crossed lovers
The Feud is the one to blame
Although Romeo and Juliet physically killed themselves, the feud is the one to blame. The feud is so ancient, that the montagues nor the capulets know why they're even fighting. If the feud didn’t happen then Romeo and Juliet didn’t have to get married in private and then have to come to Friar Laurence to ask for help otherwise she would take a knife “And with this knife I’ll help it presently” (4.1.54). If she doesn’t get help from the Friar then she would kill herself with the knife which she ended up doing in the end when she found out that romeo is dead. If the feud never happened then Juliet wouldn’t have to take the potion and “die” leading romeo to find her dead and makes a toast with poison “Here’s to my love! [Drinks.] O true apothecary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. [Falls]” (5.3.122-123). So, the feud between the family’s is to blame. Now all we need to know is who started the feud, but no one can answer. So we leave it here at the feud.
Upside Down is a movie where there are two planets are orbiting each other really closely. this world has 3 laws: 1. gravity only pulls the object where it came from. 2. An object's weight can be offset using matter from the opposite world (inverse matter) 3. After a few hours of contact, matter in contact with inverse matter burns. A young man meets a young girl from the opposite world. They meet on top of a mountain, but it's forbidden for any opposites to meet unless it's just business. She ends up falling off and hitting her head not remembering anything of the man because they got caught talking to each other. So this same man decides to later in his 20's, go and find her so he uses inverse matter to get up to the other world through the big tower they built to connect the two worlds. Eventually he gets caught and has to escape then almost dies while falling back to his world. This movie relates to Romeo and Juliet because the feud between the worlds is ruining lives'. In the balcony scene Juliet explains to Romeo "If they do see thee, they will murder thee" (2.2.78).
