The Taming of the Shrew
- 2 hr 2 min
This retelling of Shakespeare's classic play remains relatively true to the original plot while playing up the comedic aspects. The wily Petruchio pursues the stubborn and disinterested "shrew," Katherina, whose father will only allow her younger sister to marry if Katherina gets married first. Her temperamental and independent nature drive most suitors away, but Petruchio undertakes the task of taming her, using the most cunning psychological tricks he can devise.
