The Taming of the Shrew
Petruchio abuses his wife. Never hitting her but uses humiliation, sleep deprivation, and starves her. In the modern version it is teenagers that go to school and in this time they do not get married immediately. The modern version would not work the same because of the way we do things. This impacted the story because certain events were left out completely or changed in entirely. For example; in the book Petruchio and Kate attend a wedding banquet the shows that he has “tamed the shrew”, however in the movie they went to a party because her sister never gets married in the movie. This shows the different plots because Kat is not tamed at the party, she actually is more wild. Verona is never trying to “tame” Kat or hurt her in any way. He fell in love with her even though it started as a bribe. Petruchio convinces Kate while he was torturing her that he does it because he loves her. These differences keep the movie modern and makes 10 Things I Hate About You more of a true romance.
