Just finished re-watching the Lake House with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock for the umpteenth time.
Makes me cry every time toward the end. The first time I watched it I wasn’t sure what kind of ending it was going to have, and it felt like everything was headed the wrong way. That scene where Kate is kneeling beside the mailbox crying… I was probably kneeling somewhere or hugging something crying too.
Sigh. This is one movie where Keanu Reeves portrayed someone real and normal (i.e., not the bad ass world-saver or the hot cop or a punk kid) where he fit the character perfectly. The reserved way he spoke, the quiet attractiveness. Made me believe he’s actually the character Alex.
And the soundtrack was beautiful, especially the main song This Never Happened Before by Paul McCartney.
Check it out, true love believers — if you haven’t already. You won’t regret it!
