Editor's Note
Directed by Alejandro Agresti (VALENTIN), THE LAKE HOUSE reunites Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves for the first time since 1994's smash hit SPEED in this love story that transcends the limitations of time. When Doctor Kate Forster (Bullock) moves from a unique glass lake house to Chicago, she leaves a note in the mailbox for the new tenant asking that they forward any stray mail and apologizing for some mild inconveniences at the house that were there when she arrived, including paw prints in the entryway. Architect Alex Wyler (Reeves) moves in and finds Kate's note in the mailbox, but is confused--he responds that there are no paw prints to be found, and as far as he knows, the house has been empty for quite some time. When a stray dog runs past him as he is working on the entryway and leaves the trail of paw prints that Kate mentioned, Alex realizes that they are living in different years.

Nonplussed by this odd turn of events, Alex and Kate continue to correspond via notes and letters left in the lake house mailbox. Soon they are sharing their secrets, confiding in each other, and falling in love. The film follows each character in his/her current time, chronicling Alex's relationship with his brother (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) and estranged father (Christopher Plummer), as well as Kate's relationship with on-again/off-again boyfriend, Morgan (Dylan Walsh). As in all great love stories, Kate and Alex will ultimately have to take a chance. Can he wait for her until they are together in time? Will they each make the choices that ultimately allow them to be together? Only time will tell. Based on the South Korean film IL MARE, this visually appealing film makes wonderful use of Chicago and its architecture. Bullock and Reeves are both solid and likeable in the lead roles, bringing to life the wistfulness that Kate and Alex feel.

4 stars out of 5 -- "[P]ensive and slow-burning....[The actors] luminous on-screen presence carries the film." 08/01/2006 p.104

"THE LAKE HOUSE offers an intriguing time-lapse solution." 08/01/2006 p.82

San Francisco Chronicle 9 of 10
"The Lake House" depends on the charm and quirky intelligence of its lead actors. (Remember when Reeves used to seem stupid? That's a distant memory now.) It also, more than most romances, depends on the ability of the actors to project thoughtfulness and emotion in moments of isolation. Both are good at this. Bullock is so good at it that it's become a staple of her movies, the scene in which she returns home to a silent house and contemplates her life. David Auburn, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, wrote the original screenplay, which moves between two distinct time periods seamlessly, without ever becoming confusing. - Mick LaSalle

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
The Lake House tells the story of a romance that spans years but involves only a few kisses. It succeeds despite being based on two paradoxes: time travel, and the ability of two people to have conversations that are, under the terms established by the film, impossible. Neither one of these problems bothered me in the slightest. Take time travel: I used to get distracted by its logical flaws and contradictory time lines. Now in my wisdom I have decided to simply accept it as a premise, no questions asked. A time travel story works on emotional, not temporal, logic. - Roger Ebert
