I love marks the beginning of a series of back-to-back movie releases.. which I am an avid movie watcher...well, will be again. Okay, so the last movie I've seen was "American Dreams" which I thought sucked.

But I'm not going to talk to you about that. I want to talk to you about a beautiful Korean movie (with a paranormal element) called "Il Mare" which was beautifully written, gorgeously shot, and terrifically acted out-- but now I've heard they've re-made the movie and it's called "The Lake House" which stars Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock. Of course, like all things adapted, there are plenty of changes but I'm hoping they will keep the magical element of the movie... which comes down to amour, a key to why the Korean version was such a big hit. It was beautifully crafted and it was just a sweet romantic journey.

That said... THE LAKE HOUSE will be released June 16th.


Two people develop an unusual relationship that bends the boundaries of time and place in this romantic fantasy. Kate Forster (Sandra Bullock) is a doctor who lives in a beautiful home by a lake. Forced to move elsewhere, she requests that any correspondence that arrives at the lake house be passed on to her new address. To her surprise, she soon receives a romantic note from Alex Burnham (Keanu Reeves), an architect who lives in the cottage she once called home. However, a look at the postmark on the letter reveals that he lived at the home two years before she did, and that somehow they've come in contact with one another through a space in time. A remake of Lee Hyun-seung's acclaimed Korean romance Il Mare (aka Siworae), The Lake House was the first American production from Argentinean filmmaker Alejandro Agresti; the supporting cast includes Christopher Plummer, Dylan Walsh, and Lynn Collins.

Watch the trailer: I think you'll love it.
