Heath Ledger. Do we need to give you any other reason to watch this movie? 10 Things I Hate About You tells the story of the new kid Cameron who instantly is attracted to a girl called Bianca. The problem being, he can’t date her until her stubborn and independent older sister Kat goes out dating herself. Cameron entices the help from the ‘bad boy’ of the school (otherwise known as Heath Ledger). This 1999 rom-com truly pulls on the heart strings and well…. Heath Ledger…. That’s all we have to say about that.
