She's the Man

Synopsis: Here's the thing! Viola's soccer team at Cornwall gets cut. She wants to join the boys team, but they do not allow girls. So she thinks "If you can't join them, beat them". So she does! She disguises herself as her twin brother Sebastian, and goes out for the rival school, Illyria, boys' soccer team and makes it. Unfortunately, she didn't plan falling in love with her roommate Duke. But Duke has his eyes on Olivia. What makes matters worse is that Olivia starts to fall for Sebastian because he/she has a sensitive side. If things couldn't get more problematic, the real Sebastian (who was in London working on his music) comes home early. He arrives on campus and has no clue that he was replaced by his twin sister.

- I don't wanna talk about it.

He's so handsome and rugged

and chiseled and great.

Then why don't you date him, Mom?

No, I couldn't.

- Hey, Sebastian.

- Hey.

You OK?

Monique was looking for you.

Why do you even date her, anyway?

She's hot. It's a guy thing.

But she's so awful.

Hey, you know,

you could use the front door.

And Mom can't see me.

She thinks I'm staying at Dad's.

Dad thinks I'm at Mom's.

In two days they both think

I'm going away to school.

- That is the beauty of divorce.

- Where are you going?

London for a couple of weeks.

As in London, England?

Yeah, my band got a slot

in a music festival there.

OK, what are you gonna do about school?

Yeah, I was kind of hoping

you could help me with that.

Could you just, like, pretend to be Mom,

call Illyria, tell them I'm sick?

Something that sounds like it

would last for two weeks, like mad cow.

Sebastian, you just got kicked out

of Cornwall for skipping.

This is not exactly the way

you want to start out.

I want to be a musician.

Last time I heard,

they don't need to know trigonometry.


if you want to chase your dreams,

sometimes you gotta

break the rules, right?

You know the percentage of bands

that make it to the big time?

Probably the same

as female soccer players.

I will see you in two weeks.


- Sebastian!

- Were you talking with your brother?

No. Yes.

On the phone. He's at Dad's. Bye, Dad.

Picture this:

We're at the country club,

they call your name,

and you emerge in this.

No. Sorry, Mom.

I have a strict no-ruffles policy.

Sometimes I just think you

just might as well be your brother.

You know what?

If you can't join them, beat them.

You want me

to turn you into your brother?

That's right.

I'm going to Illyria as Sebastian.
