The movie She's the Man is, of course, an adaptation of Shakespeare's play Twelfth Night.  An essay focusing on gender equality, identity, and relationships should include supporting details in each body paragraph to illustrate each of those major themes.  Choose at least two strong examples, scenes, or quotes from the movie to focus on in each body paragraph.  Moreover, it would be interesting as well to relate the movies' portrayals of each theme back to the original Shakespeare play and compare or contrast the modern version to the original.  Another interesting aspect for consideration would be to include how the movie's use of characterization also influences the development of each theme.
