Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) is a beautiful, smart girl, but quite different from most of the other teenage girls. that meaning she doesn’t really attract boys. Her younger sister, Bianca (Larisa Oleynik) attracts many boys, but is never allowed to hang out with them. House rules are that she can’t date until Kat has a boyfriend. So Bianca pulls strings to set Kat up with a guy. Soon enough Kat crosses paths with handsome new arrival Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger).
