When in doubt, pull a classic rom-com out. And this is exactly what we have done for the weekend! Think back to your time as an angsty teen that just wanted to experience real love... lots of drama. Dress in your best flannel or spaghetti strap tank for this weekend's watch, 10 Things I Hate About You.
There are so many different ways to hate. Count them yourself.
Cameron James (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a new student at Padua High and immediately falls for the beautiful and seemingly vapid Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik). His new friend, Michael Eckman (David Krumholtz), warns Cameron that Bianca is a waste of time because she only has eyes for the school heartthrob, and donut, Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan). Undeterred, Cameron is determined to date Bianca and finds out that the only way to do so is if her older sister, Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) also dates. His solution is bad boy Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger). Together with Michael, they convince Joey to bribe Patrick with money to date Kat, hoping this will unlock Bianca’s ability to date also. Patrick agrees to the money, thinking it an easy assignment but soon becomes entirely irritated by her wild and unruly nature. He threatens to break off the deal just before prom causing panic amongst the Bianca-loving men. Will the plan work? Will Kat be changed by Patrick forever? Who will Bianca fall for? Tune in to find out!
Based on William Shakespeare's 'Taming Of The Shrew', this film is a brilliant modern update with a super fun cast of first-timers! Heath as the bad boy Patrick and Julia as the prickly Kat are just perfect as a duo. We hope you enjoy this absolute classic!
