The Lake House

Dir: Alejandro Agresti (Valentin, Buenos Aires Vice Versa)
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Christopher Plummer, Ebon Moss-Bachrach
USA, 2006

Seen: February 27, 2007

Reason to see: Looked charming, fan of both Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves

A quietly touching romantic film, this was a joy to watch. It is one that is best seen if you get all cozy and turn off your logical mind/continuity checker and just enjoy it. The acting is solid, the characters are believable and/or accessible and you can really feel their reactions be it strong or subtle you are really there with them. Don't fret about the 'whether it's possible or not', just believe what they tell ya.

Shannon's Overall View:
I enjoyed it
I'd watch it again, in fact - I'd probably buy it
I'd recommend it to anyone who likes romantic films

This was one of my favourites of 2006, even R adored it. I shared it with a few friends of mine too and they loved it. I can't imagine not liking it. It warmed my heart for sure.

I was surprised by this one - I loved it!! I am not a big Keanu fan, but thought he was pretty good in this one. Sandra is always a favorite!
