She's The Man

            A girl gets herself into a jam by posing as her twin brother on a soccer team at a boarding school and soon enough falls in love with her handsome roommate.

            Viola Johnson, disguised as her twin brother, Sebastian Johnson, discovers her love for Duke, her roommate. A complicated love circle arises when Duke falls for beautiful Olivia and Olivia falls for Sebastian who is actually Viola under disguise.

            Matters become even more problematic when Sebastian returns back to school from London earlier than expected and has no idea that his sister has already replaced him on campus.

            Viola’s successful when it comes to swapping disguises and covering up her true identity, until the truth is exposed and Viola and Duke realize their mutual feelings for each other.

            In midst to get back at her ex-boyfriend and the soccer coach at Viola’s original school for cutting the girl’s soccer team, Viola disguises herself as Sebastian and receives help from Duke to become better at the game so that she can become a first string player and prove her point.

            Viola plays her part as both herself and her brother for weeks while he is in London and tells each of her divorced parents that she is staying at the other ones house.

  1. I've always thought this was one of the weirdest Shakespeare-as-teen-comedy attempts, but maybe that's just because Amanda Bynes has gone off the rails these days. Anyway, you do well with a complicated narrative, but at times it feels like instead of telling the story you are just trying to keep the characters straight.
