Twelfth Night VS She’s The Man
Love is a powerful thing, most people take advantage of love but then there are the lucky ones who find their true love. In Shakespeare play Twelfth Night and in the movie She’s The Man are very different. They are both very much the same. But they both have different scenarios.
