A lonely doctor, who once occupied an unusual lakeside house, begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it's too late.
Lucy's life consists of constant loneliness that is until she saves Peter's life. Now she is a part of his family, and with a strong heart and fate on her side, others begin to realize what a terrific person she is, especially Jack, Peter's brother. An extraordinarily true-to-life sequence of events begins to take place as Lucy and Jack become closer and learn more about each other and themselves than one would ever expect from such coincidental, yet believable events.Written by

The locations of the Callaghans' home and the church where Lucy's parents married are both in LaGrange, a suburb of Chicago. Coincidentally, the address number of each location is 203; the Callaghan home is located at 203 8th Ave, and the church is located only a half mile west at 203 S. Kensington Ave. Both locations sit on the corner of Elm Ave and the street of each one's respective address. See more »
During the movie, the camera pans by the stocking the Callaghans make for Lucy, one time, her name is written in WHITE puffy paint; the next time, it is written in BLACK puffy paint. See more »
So, do you have any family?
My mom died when I was really little and a couple of years ago my dad got sick so we moved from Indiana so he could go to research hospital.
Research. Another word for very expensive.
Yeah, I had to quit school and I started working for the CTA and about a year ago he decided he had had enough research and he passed away.

In the video release, the scene when Jack offers to drive Lucy to Celeste's party is shortened. When shown in theaters, you see them get into the truck, drive less than a block, and then get back out. See more »
Warm and gentle comedy that shows Bullock to her best advantage, in her favorite role of shy closet beauty. Bullock obsesses about a man she sees briefly every day; when he is knocked unconscious she claims to be his fiancée. Then sparks begin to fly with the brother. Wonderful turns by Boyle and Warden as older family members. There's a great line by Boyle in this movie, something like you always imagine you'll have these long golden moments in life and then when you get there it lasts about a minute. I think Bullock was never better than in this movie, in later productions her shy modesty seems a little artificial. She and Pullman have just enough chemistry together to pull this through.
