Lovers, Poets, and Academics

A cute movie, something along the lines of a Shakespeare in Love meets The Da Vinci Code. The movie follows two academics as they hunt down tantalizing clues about a 19th century poet's extramarital love affair. While it is clear from the beginning that they the poet did have an affair, the movie throws in a few twists and turns. United in their quest, Aaron Eckhart and Paltrow's characters inevitably fall in love.

The movie has a nice rhythm to it. It never really throws up any major surprises, but the storyline is original enough that it remains entertaining. Both Paltrow and Eckhart act pretty well in this film, so it's pretty easy to sympathize them along as they become obsessed with the dead poet's love letters. Overall, a great date film.
