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.

Love’s Labour’s Lost

 

In this exuberant romantic comedy youthful idealism gets derailed by love. The King of Navarre and his buddies have plans to immerse themselves in their studies swearing off less civilized pursuits — namely girls. After the Princess of France arrives with her ladies on a diplomatic mission, the young men’s hearts melt along with their brainy resolve. Playful pranks, witty wordplay and moony wooing give way to more serious matters that reveal the cost of real love.
