View All Available Formats & Editions


Directed by Paul McGuigan, Wicker Park follows Chicago businessman Matthew's (Josh Hartnett) return to Windy City life after having dedicated two years of his life to mourning his long lost love Lisa (Diane Kruger), who'd mysteriously vanished from his life. Things are finally looking up again for Matthew; his career is in full swing, and he's thinking of becoming engaged -- that is, until he thinks he's spotted his former lover in a restaurant. Almost immediately, Matthew puts the brakes on his marriage plans and his career in order to conduct an exhaustive search for his old flame. Obsessed, he barely notices the psychologically devastating trap his quest is leading him into -- a danger that only grows when he meets an enigmatic stranger (Rose Byrne). Wicker Park features Matthew Lillard and Jessica Paré in supporting roles.

This movie's soundtrack was better than the movie itself. Don't waste your time with this one.

This movie came out when I was twelve. I saw it mentioned in a magazine and I knew I had to see it. Five years later, I found it in the bargain bin at out local B&N and so I bought it. My sister, friend, and I watched it and when it was over, we just sat there and looked at one another. It was an amazing show. When it starts out, you're like "what's going on? I don't get it." Then, bit by bit, the plot unravels. As the show nears its end, it has you on the edge of your seat, hardly daring to breathe. Then it ends and you feel like laughing and crying. On the box, it says "sexy thriller" and that's it exactly. The way the different characters' stories are woven together is astounding. The acting is superb, and it is not without its humorous moments. Overall, I highly recommend it. There is no other show like it on earth.

Although you really have to follow this movie pretty well, I thought this was an invredible movie.....for anyone who has ever lost love and found them again.......this is one to watch!

When "arty" direction becomes a distraction, it becomes over-done and that's exactly what happens in this film. It also has enough plot holes to drive a Mac truck through. I’d been meaning to watch this for a while, but the cheesy looking cover and the blurb, made me think it would be weak-plotted but that certainly wasn’t the case. The storyline is composed of flashbacks and that didn't affect my enjoyment of this film, despite its momentary confusion! The beginning didn't satisfy me completely, but I stuck with it. At first glance, it appeared disjointed, vaguely incoherent and kind of hard to follow, but as it went on, it became clear that this might be a film I'd have to maybe watch a second time to appreciate it on the level it actually meant to be appreciated on. This can't be described as a perfect film, but, to anyone who can identify with it will certainly interest you and leave you with a number of angles to view it from. All the cast deliver a great performances. Hartnett is entirely believable as the haunted young man, caught up in a whirlwind of romances that threaten to destroy him, with good support from Matthew Lillard as his snazzy best friend, and Byrne and Kruger providing captivating female parts. Although a romance, it didn't feel soppy, more tense actually (you end up hitting a lot of things while watching), until the final scene-which gives you a real warm fuzzy feeling! In case you want to see the original, reverse to L'Appartement. The original actors are Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci which isn’t bad, they met and fell in love on the set! You may have noticed the name of the restaurant in Wicker Park...no?... it's Bellucci's )

I believe it was a great story and a great idea, but, even though one must think that it is about a very dark or even creepy obsession, at the ending, that goes away very easily. Althought the actual final scene must be romantic for most people, it was giving up the so called obsession that might be dissapointing. Stll, it is a good film.

How many movies have you watched where you just didn't believe that the leading characters were really in love with each other? From start to the grande finale, you get the feeling, deep inside of you, that the main man is absolutely in love with his leading lady. Honestly, I can't tell you another movie that compares to this.

This movie is the best romantic movie that has come out in a while. The acting was superb. Will keep you on the edge of your seat anxiously waiting for the expected to not happen, but it all leads to a great ending which will leave you in tears
