Love lost

Filed under: film — burnett @ 7:44 pm

The movie “Lake House” starts corny and ends corny, but in between is a profound exposition of the hopelessness of love.� A couple communicates across time, more specifically, they are two years apart.� This cannot possibly end well, but they get so close…it is tantalizing and enormously bittersweet.� They know they have something, they can smell it and feel it, they just can’t make it come together.� And both will drop everything and anything to make their relationship happen.� Torture.� � And ultimately realistic.� The beauty of promise of love makes so much sense for those vivid moments.� What is it about love that makes it disappear.� Why is there no monument in Washington, DC to love?� It just plain vanishes and expects those who cling to it to “put it behind them”,� or � “move forward”.� When love fails, the participants feel worthless. Stars Keanu Reeves and Sandy Bullock.
