TWELVE years after appearing opposite each other in the hugely successful action thriller Speed, Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock are back on the big screen together.Starring in The Lake House, showing at the Odeon, Weston, this week, Reeves and Bullock set out to prove love really can conquer all.Dr Kate Forster (Sandra Bullock) leaves her home in Illinois to take a job in Chicago. She is reluctant to leave her cleverly designed house, which she has grown so fond of. Before she leaves, Kate writes a note for the new tenant asking for any letters to be forwarded to her and explaining about the paw prints by the front door.When the next tenant, Alex Wyler (Keanu Reeves), moves in he finds the lake house badly neglected, in need of some tender loving care, and with no paw prints anywhere to be seen.Alex ignores the note left behind by Kate until, a few days later, as he is painting the jetty, he sees a stray dog run across the paint - leaving paw prints. Confused, he writes back to Kate, saying he knew of no occupant before him and asking how she knew about the paw prints.Eventually the two realise they are living two years apart. While Alex is in 2004, Kate is in 2006. Even more amazing is the fact they are falling in love. But can they bridge distance - and time - to find true love?
