Based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, screenplay by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, directed by Gil Junger. Starring Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles.
This teen-comedy re-working of The Taming of the Shrew could well have fallen flat. Instead, it’s sharp, pacy and a chance for young talents Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to display their promise. Kat deplores ‘the idiocy of teenage social life’ but all the while she’s playing in a witty demonstration of the opposite.
