The Lake House

Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock from Speed reunite in this romance. Watch the trailer and you'll hear Ms. Bullock sum up the plot and theme profoundly: "Even though it's impossible, it's amazing." Living in the same house but separated by two years, Dr. Kate Forster (Bullock) and architect Alex Wyler (Reeves) begin a relationship by letter (and by mailbox) that inexplicably traverses time. As their relationship intensifies, the pair have to reconcile their growing feelings against the reality of their lives.
