One of the finest post-Brat Pack era teen movies to come out of the States was 1999’s 10 Things I Hate About You. It helped launch the careers of Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and for a lot of guys wanting to go full beast it launched them into heavy make out sessions with their lady friends. In short this was the perfect date movie. A clever adaptation of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew; it was one a part of a cinematic revival of teen movies which had been a dead genre since the late 80’s. It was extremely fun, and way better than it should have been. Why not revisit this new classic during its 15th anniversary in 35mm?
