The Lake House
The Lake House is a romantic drama with a time paradox twist. Through a mysterious mailbox and enigmatic dog Kate Forster (Sandra Bullock) and Alex Wyler (Keanu Reeves) have a long distance relationship. In this case, though, the distance is in time, two years to be exact, not space. Both of them live in the same lake house but their time there is offset by two years. They communicate to each other by writing letters and leaving them in the mailbox. Somehow this mailbox is able to transport the letter back and forward in time. As they communicate the two fall deeply in love with each other. Their mutual love and forced separation allows each of them to resolve their own relationship issues. And then there's the constant suspense of wondering if they will ever get together.
There are a few time paradoxes that come up and make the movie more interesting than a typical romance drama. I won't spoil the movie by mentioning them. Of course, as with any time-travel type movie, there are holes in the plot and places where time acts a bit funny. But that's to be expected and the viewer will have to accept the unreality of the situation in order to enjoy the movie.
There were some really slow parts in the movie. This is one of the few movies where I've seen people walk out. Despite the slow sections I thought the movie was still worth seeing. It gave you stuff to think about and was fun at the same time. Kinda like a romance version of The Sixth Sense.
