Once more, I must mention that this review is for the Director's Cut of Kate and Leopold. The movie opens in the 1800's. A bridge is just being built (I believe the Brooklyn Bridge, but I don't believe it is ever said). Leopold is at the dedication ceremony. He notices a man snickering behind him and turns to look. He sees this man (turns out to be Stuart) take a picture with a tiny (and I do mean tiny) camera. This is out of place and Stuart takes off running. Leopold gives chase but is unable to catch him. Next we see Leopold at home, at a party, and he sees Stuart one more time and he gives chase again. This time he catches up to Stuart but they both fall from a bridge. Flash forward to our time and Kate (Meg Ryan) appears. She lives one floor below her ex-boyfriend, Stuart. Stuart calls her and says that he has actually traveled through time but accidentally brought back his great grandfather.
Still angry at her ex, Kate does not believe his story nor does she believe that Leopold is really from 1867. However, because of the close proximity of their apartments, and Stuart's later accident, Kate and Leopold interact more and more often and become friends. Boy meets girl, you know the story.Read more ›
