USA / English
"How do you hold on to someone you've never met?

They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it's too late.
Interesting and touching fantasy/romance
This is a touching, well-acted, and beautiful looking film. Sandra
Bullock and Keannu Reeves have great chemistry together and the
supporting actors are very competent. The story is absorbing and
interesting, and although its a time-travel fantasy, it's logical
within it's basic premise.
Don't listen to the people who claim bad acting. The acting is fine and
the chemistry between the leads is very real. Anyone who gave this
movie a bad rating was definitely in the minority in their theater -
most people at the showing I attended clapped and cheered at the end
and many stayed to watch the credits roll - always a sign of a good,
and touching, movie.
As for those people who claim that the story is "implausible"....
they're probably the same people who think that silly IMPOSSIBLE
fantasies like X-Men, King-Kong, Lord of the Rings, Spiderman, etc, etc
were great movies. At least the characters and events in Lake House are
believable, once the basic premise is accepted. Can't say that about
drivel like X-Men.
See this film with someone you love. You'll both like this film.
