Kate & Leopold (2001)

Amateur Physicist Stuart Besser ends up finding a porthole through time, and when he comes back to the future he ends up bringing Leopold, Duke of Albany from the 19th Century back with him to the 21st Century. When Stuart ends up in the hospital after an accident, he asks his ex-girlfriend Kate, who lives in the same building as him to keep an eye on Leopold. He slowly starts to get used to the modern day world and technology, hanging out with Kate's actor brother Charlie. But Kate doesn't believe who Leopold says he is and although they share some tender moments, their ways of life and opinions clash. After Stuart comes back home, he thinks that Leopold should return to where he came from, but Leopold can't forget Kate, and she can't forget him either. A funny and charming tale of two star-crossed lovers from different eras of time. Starring Meg Ryan, Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Natasha Lyonne, Breckin Meyer 7/10
