10 Things I hate About You (1999): review- 9/10

Cleverly directed high school drama about two sisters, opposite in character: one outgoing, superficial and popular, the second a mean-spirited loner.

Their conservative father will only permit the first sister to date if the second sister also has a date: so rebel Heath Ledger is paid to ask the second sister out by the first sister's consort.

The twists and turns of plot are handled with wit and aplomb and the film is often very funny, and even insightful (which should perhaps come as no surprise given that it is based on "The Taming of the Shrew").
