Truly Moving Picture

I saw this film on May 26th, 2006 in Indianapolis. I am one of the judges for the Heartland Film Festival's Truly Moving Picture Award. A Truly Moving Picture "?explores the human journey by artistically expressing hope and respect for the positive values of life." Heartland gave that award to this film. An attractive, educated, professionally fulfilled Doctor (Sandra Bullock) "meets" an attractive, educated, sensitive architect (Keanu Reeves) via letters and a past common residency of a particular lake house. What could be the problem? The problem is that they are currently living two years apart and then again at the exact same time in this romantic, heart-wrenching, dramatic fairy tale. The Doctor leaves the lake house in rural Illinois in 2006 in order to advance her career and find happiness in Chicago. She leaves a note to an unknown-to-her new tenant, the architect, to forward her mail. They correspond to each other and slowly discover that he is actually living in the house 2 years earlier in 2004. And ? they share the same dog. But somehow the viewer can suspend disbelief and get into the story because the two characters are believable and intelligent and are initially just as skeptical of the time riddle as the viewer. Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock re-unite for the first time since "Speed." The genre of "The Lake House" is completely different, but the actors are just as complementary and likable in this fantasy tale. They both display a deep, patient, and profound love for each other. And they do so with grace and charm and a chemistry that can't be readily explained. Much of this film plays like a mystery with mothers and fathers, siblings, and boy and girl friends weaving in and out of the story in the present time of 2004 and the present time of 2006. But through it all, the Doctor and the architect ultimately never lose hope that they can solve this time puzzle and can actually be together at the same moment in time. FYI ? There is a Truly Moving Pictures web site where there is a listing of past Truly Moving Picture Award winners that are now either at the theater or available on video.

Even though this is clearly impossible, it's amazing.

I saw this film on June 12th, 2006 at a preview showing in my home town of Austin, Texas. Admittedly, when I first viewed the trailer it appeared to be nothing more than a cheap romantic flick with a hunk (Keanu Reeves) and a pretty girl (Sandra Bullock). After watching this film, I realized first impressions can sometimes be wrong.The plot may be a bit out of the ordinary. But if you suspend logic for an hour or two and believe in the magic of the story, it will draw you into a deeply passionate story. There are some twists that may or may not surprise (especially if you're as quick as my wife).Although Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock have had some iffy acting performances in the past, both put in excellent performances that made their characters come alive. Each characters has a very earthy feel that makes them seem real and relatable.Overall, I have to say this is a beautiful movie, from the story to the acting to the beautiful cinematography.

"Implausible?" So What?

If I read one more negative review of this movie that takes it to task for being "implausible," I'm afraid I will lose it completely.I have to ask myself what these same critics (assuming they're old enough to remember it) would have said about virtually any episode of the Rod Serling classic "Twilight Zone." I think it's safe to say most of those plots were based on fairly "implausible" happenings, in comparison to our real-life, day-to-day existence.And I'm sure Richard Donner's "Superman" movie would have felt their wrath as well, since everyone knows people can't fly."Implausible." Good grief."The Lake House" is a romantic fairy tale -- and a darned good one, too. It's NOT confusing or hard to understand at all, assuming the viewer has more than two ounces of comprehension skill.To me, the recent film it seems closest to in subject matter and style is "Frequency," which I also enjoyed tremendously.And yes -- call me crazy, but the things that happen in "Frequency" are fairly "implausible" too.And, oh yeah -- since I don't really believe angels have to jump through ridiculous hoops to get their wings, I'm guessing these same Scrooges have no use for "It's a Wonderful Life," either.Sheesh.

loved it

I saw a screening of this last night and maybe I was just in the right mood for it, but I really enjoyed it. I'm not even a chick-flick kind of girl! It's best if you don't over-analyze the time-travel details and just go with it... it's a movie, after all. Seriously, I wasn't expecting that much and I got a better feeling from this movie than I have in a long time - it made me feel warm and happy. Plus, the whole theater laughed at some parts, plus people gasped and cried, and at the end everyone applauded. That's a good sign, if you ask me. I don't watch previews so I don't know what they give away about the plot, so I'm not going to give much of anything away here. I will just say that to me this was a uniquely told romantic story. I happen to like Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, although they are by no means favorites of mine, nor do I consider them to be consistently amazing actors (more often they're not... at least he's not...). But they made this story work for me and I believe they have good chemistry. The movie is set in Chicago and shows the city off nicely without trying to beat you over the head with it (a la The Break-Up). One thing I think I related to a lot with these characters is that they are both pretty isolated and lonely, although not in a sad-sack way. I felt a longing from them for someone to relate to, and even though they have opportunities for other people to be involved in their lives... well it's not what's best for them and they don't settle. Plus, the actors are both in their 40s and I like seeing love stories that aren't about either two 22-year-olds or a 40-year-old man and a 22-year-old girl.
