The Lake House is the touching story of two people, Alex & Kate, who maintain a long distance relationship through letters. While this love story may sound like a typical long distance correspondence, their romance is far from normal.
Kate and Alex both live in the same city and both have lived in the same house, but somehow they are separated by time –never having met.
Dee: This movie elegantly depicts the struggle that many long-distance couples face today. While their particular situation is unique, Kate and Alex have to deal with many disappointments that are common to Long Distance Relationships. From simply being far from one another, to having to wait to 2 years to eventually be together –we watch them go through the ups and downs of their unusual relationship.
What stood out most about The Lake House was how unsure the characters sometimes felt in their situation. New romances hardly ever come with a rulebook as many long distance couples can attest to, and this relationship was no exception. Yet they were always hopeful even when things seemed impossible.
The Lake House is a beautiful reminder of the simple fact that sometimes our biggest obstacle is not distance, but time and the issues it may force us to face within ourselves. I feel that most long distance couples will find this movie sincerely relatable – from the couples who have not yet met for the first time, down to the couples who are waiting for their next visit together.
Zach: The Lake House is not your ordinary love story. Though the introduction and beginning scenes may be a little hard to grasp, the kinks get worked out through clever story telling.
Without venturing too far into spoiler territory, I can say that the plot unwinds itself to the point where you are figuring things out at almost exactly the same time as the characters, in the best way.
The Lake House seems to be one of the best and most accurate of movies that depict truly long distance relationships. Many couples who have been or are currently in an LDR can agree –there is not always a one hundred percent degree of certainty for the entire duration of your relationship.
This movie is no exception to that rule and shows the uncertainty that long distance relationships can have in a wonderful way. Another thing this movie shows -which can seriously help those in a relationship now, is that planning and communication can and will take you quite a long ways.
We give The Lake House a 9 out of 10 for its beautiful storyline and how unexpectedly relatable it is for long distance couples. If you haven’t seen this movie yet -check out out, rent it, watch it together with your loved one. We’re sure you’ll be blown away.
