The Lake House ★★½ 2006 (PG)

Confusing time-travel romance that appeals because of its leads, who haven't worked together since 1994's “Speed.” Chicago doctor Kate (Bullock) leaves a note for the next renter of her glass box lakeside house. Only architect Alex (Reeves) insists that no one has lived in the rundown property for years before him. Hmmm, somehow the attractive twosome communicates with each other despite a two-year time gap. They fall in love, but trying to meet face-to-face is a complicated business. A remake of the 2000 South Korean film “Siworae.” 108m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc, HD DVD . US Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dylan Walsh, Christopher Plummer, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Willeke Van Ammelrooy, Lynn Collins; D: Alejandro Agresti; W: David Auburn; C: Alar Kivilo; M: Rachel Portman.
