New Favorite Movie Moment

The Lake House (Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves) - that moment at the end when they're walking toward each other and they finally meet in the same frame and Sandra says "You waited..."

I love SB, though I usually think of her as a comedic rather than a romantic heroine. And I would usually laugh at the idea of KR as anything close to a romantic hero. But, it works here. He works here. His stiffness and lack of chemistry isn't so much of a factor in this storyline since so much of it is told from their individual perspective and voices, and the medium of letters itself requires a certain amount of distance and looking inward.

The movie's logic/timeline is a little befuddling, but that ending? A sweet and wonderful moment.

I haven't seen this yet because Keanu's acting makes me want to crease up all the time.

But I do love Sandra. She is so cute and such a lovely actress.

Thanks for the heads up about it. I'll check it out.

I'm a film freak.

Definitely do. It's worth a couple hours on the couch on a lazy afternoon.
