The Notebook, Titanic, Sleepless in Seattle, etc. are the immediate mind-striking movies when we think of Romantic Movies. The Lake House starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock may not appear once. Which I would say is an injustice.
Is The Lake House the best romantic movie of all time?
NO!. The Lake House is, however, a great romantic movie that doesn’t get enough discussion from romance enthusiasts. Let’s discuss why this movie is great.
It was 1994 and Speed was a massive success. It also starred two young stars, Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves. Generally, Speed is one of the really great action movies of the ‘90s. One reason for the film’s greatness is the chemistry between its leads.
Is it a Simple Story With Magic?
There are so many great movies about time loops, time travel, bending time, and all things that deal with time manipulation. These films also set a series of rules about changing events and how that can be dangerous. The Lake House basically says, “We don’t care about any of that stuff. We’re just going to do what we want!”
To me, The Lake House is saying that these magical, unexplainable things happen all the time in the world. You just have to be open enough to allow them to happen. You can find love and magic, but you have to let it come to you. It also says that life is precious, but sometimes patience is key to what you really want.
The Lake House shows the beauty of the city.
As Alex (Keanu Reeves) shows Kate (Sandra Bullock) the wonders of the city, the film is also allowing the viewers a little taste of it as well. It’s nice to see Chicago get the same kind of love that cities like Los Angeles, London, New York, and Paris get in movies.
