Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) is beautiful, smart and quite abrasive to most of her fellow teens, meaning that she doesn't attract many boys. Unfortunately for her younger sister, Bianca (Larisa Oleynik), house rules say that she can't date until Kat has a boyfriend, so strings are pulled to set the dour damsel up for a romance. Soon Kat crosses paths with handsome new arrival Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger). Will Kat let her guard down enough to fall for the effortlessly charming Patrick?

Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger in all their youthful comedic glory. Always makes me laugh and warms my heart. A modern take on The Taming of the Shrew, the whole cast is exceptional. One minute it's pulling on your heartstrings with Stiles classroom poetry and the next you're in feel-good heaven as Ledger is strutting across the bleachers singing I Can't Take My Eyes Off You. Pure genius!
