Anne Folloso and Mari Todua- 5th Period
She's the Man
Elements of Shakespearean Comedy
-In the movie Duke forgives Viola's lies and they ended up together in the debutante party.
- In the play, The siblings, Viola and Sebastian, realized that they both survived the ship wreck. Viola and Duke ended up together and so did Olivia and Sebastian. Duke announces double wedding between him, Viola, Olivia and Sebastian "A solemn combination, on shall be made of our dear souls"(page 39)
- They're similar because at the end of both the movie and the play, Everyone is coupled up and happy. The difference is that in the movie Monique and Malcolm are together but in the play Malvolio is left alone and furious.
- Cesario is accused of fighting with sir Andrew " The court's gentlman, one Cesario: we took him for a coward, but he's the very devil incardinate" says sir Andrew (page 36). Meanwhile Olivia keeps saying that she married Cesario " Weither, my lord? Cesario husband stay." But Viola doesn't remember doing any of these,
- Movie and Play are similar because in both of them Viola was forced to say the truth to untangle herself from all the misunderstanding. The difference is that in "The Twelfth Night" Olivia marries Sebastian and in the movie she doesn't.
