Twelfth Night, She’s The Man She’s the Man is a loosely based modernized version of the famous Shakespeare play, Twelfth Night. They have the same basic plots; Girl is in disguise as her twin brother for her own reasons, which evolves into a distorted love triangle. Title, language and setting are a few of the main differences between the two plays. The title She’s the Man was chosen for the modernized version of Twelfth Night. The new title appeals to a younger broader crowd.
The unique and catchy pun attracts viewers attention to the movie and seems to add to the movies popularity. While the title Twelfth Night appeals to an older audience, that know about William Shakespeare, his work, writing, this play and have a general idea of what it is about. The new title implies that the movie will be more of a comedy, while the title Twelfth Night doesn’t really imply that the play will be a comedy at all, but more in the tragedy genre. The two titles are better then the other in different ways and both appeal to separate audiences.
The language in the movie She’s the Man is very much different than the language in Twelfth Night because of the vast variation between time set of the two plays and the writing characteristics used in them. Shakespeare used his language to convey a difference in feelings, attitudes, or personalities of characters in different situations. Malvolio generally speaks showing intelligence, yet Feste the clown often plays with words and uses puns. In contrast there are smoothly-flowing lines from Orsino “If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die. [Act 1, Scene 1] The audience cannot help but feel pity towards his self-induced love sickness, but at the same time the situation provokes hilarity, as he has never actually met Olivia. While the language in She`s the Man is written in the language style we speak every day. Although the way the characters speak slightly conveys their personality it is nothing in comparison to the way Twelfth Night is written. She`s the Man is written in a way that is easy and clear for us to understand what is going on and comprehend the personalities of the characters in the story.
Twelfth Night is set in the mythical land of Illyria during Medieval times, where Viola and Sebastian had washed up ashore after a terrible shipwreck. Although Viola believes that Sebastian is dead and Sebastian thinks the same about Viola. So Viola masquerades as a boy named Cesario and goes to work for Orsino who she quickly becomes infatuated with. She`s the Man is set at an American school named Illyria, where Sebastian is supposed to be attending school.
Sebastion ditches schools and travels to London for two weeks, while he is gone Viola transforms herself to look exactly like her twin brother and goes to school pretending to be him. The story She`s the Man is based on the play Twelfth Night and both a lot of similarities such as plot, characters, conflict, and love. Both also have a lot of differences such as setting, language, and title this generally being because producers try to make the modernized version as popular as possible, and in order to do this they had to make some changes to the original play.
