The Lake House - Film

The latest film from Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves. This is a romantic drama, light on the comedy. The idea is that the two main characters have lived in the same house 2 years apart. Something happens and they are able to write letters to each other using the "magic mailbox" in front of the house. Sandra is fairly isolated and Keanu has issues with his father so having someone to write to gives them the closeness they are both looking for. Really well acted and some lovely scenes. Moving in places without being too corny. The only down side is that you need to not question the whole letter box part. The movie offers no explanations which is good as I don't think they could come up with something believable and letting it go lets you gloss over it whilst watching it.

I would give it * * *
