Kate and Leopold
L
eopold is a duke who travels through time from 1876 to modern day New York. He is a charming, polite, old-fashioned ‘gentleman’. Of course he is dashingly handsome too. He stands when a woman leaves the table and is very formal and polite when he speaks to other people and particularly when he speaks to women.

Kate (played by Meg Ryan) is a modern day advertising executive. She finds herself falling in love with Leopold. Leopold feels the same. The problem they have is how they can be together when he must return to 1876 and she is in modern day New York.

This is the kind of movie that is often labelled as a ‘chick flick’. It is a romantic comedy. Being a woman, I loved it and rated it highly. My husband disagreed and rated it 3 out of 10!

Rating: 8 out of 10
