I’m stunned and saddened to turn on the TV and find that, at age 28, Heath Ledger is dead. 10 Things I Hate About You is one of the only teen movies I actually like. I bought it for my girls. And he made The Patriot palatable for someone like me, who must watch it with her history-lovin’ husband each year around the Fourth of July. But of course, there is A Knight’s Tale. I wrote about it here; about how it works as a great New Year’s movie. But these are only small pieces of his work. He did good work. He seemed like a good man. And much too young to be gone.
