Storyline

Kate and her actor brother live in N.Y. in the 21st Century. Her ex-boyfriend, Stuart, lives above her apartment. Stuart finds a space near the Brooklyn Bridge where there is a gap in time. He goes back to the 19th Century and takes pictures of the place. Leopold -- a man living in the 1870s -- is puzzled by Stuart's tiny camera, follows him back through the gap, and they both ended up in the present day. Leopold is clueless about his new surroundings. He gets help and insight from Charlie who thinks that Leopold is an actor who is always in character. Leopold is a highly intelligent man and tries his best to learn and even improve the modern conveniences that he encounters. Written by Rosemea D.S. MacPherson

Quotes

[first lines]
Roebling: Time. Time, it has been proposed, is the fourth dimension. And yet, for mortal man, time has no dimension at all. We are like horses with blinders, seeing only what lies before us. Forever guessing the future and fabricating the past.

Enchanting
7 May 2003 | by staisil2See all my reviews

Kate and Leopold is a diverse little romantic movie about a Duke (Hugh Jackman) from the 19th century, and modern day wanderers, including a love-depressed Kate, (Meg Ryan), her ex-boyfriend, Stuart, (Liev Shrieber), and her brother, Charlie, (Breken Meyer). Jackman and Ryan are two star-crossed people searching for love, and all's they get is a little push from the people around them, and a little thing called a time portal. This movie is refreshing, with a new type of concept, and all of the writing and acting was wonderfully done! 8.5 out of 10.
