The Lake House

Factual error: When Kate is at Il Mare waiting for Alex, she straightens the knives at his place. The knives are set incorrectly, with the blades facing away from the plate. The fanciest restaurant in Chicago would never make this mistake. (01:11:45)

More quotes from The Lake House

Question: Why did Alex have to wait until Valentine's Day 2008 to meet Kate? Even assuming for the sake of argument that the "time-traveling" letters stopped after Alex avoided the bus accident on "his" Valentine's Day 2006, Alex certainly knew how to find Kate at that time - and vice versa. The two-year gap where Kate had not known about Alex had closed by that time, and each knew about the other.

Answer: Kate asked him to wait, and come in 2008, so that's what he did. Likely they could have found each other before then, but it might not have even occurred to either of them.
