The Taming of the Shrew

 

With a sharp tongue and a volcanic temper, the headstrong Kate bows down to no man. But then a dubious suitor named Petruchio swaggers out of the woods and into the trailer park with a mischievous plan to reach her guarded heart. Played out in a forgotten corner of rural America, their comic courtship is a no-holds-barred battle of the sexes that results in a love and understanding that neither one imagined.
