 “The Lake House” and seven more great films with Sandra Bullock that will brighten up a stuffy summer evening

Unbelievable but true, on July 26, 2022, the beautiful star is 58 years old.

“Speed” (1994)

The daughter of an American and a German, Sandra Annette Bullock was born in the United States, spent her childhood in Germany, starred in films and television since the late 1980s, and became a star in the summer of 1994. The perfect action movie, starring the mind-blowingly beautiful Keanu Reeves as an LA cop and Sandra as first passenger and then bus driver, remains one of the best and most successful films of both of their careers.

“While You Were Sleeping” (1995)

The film, starring Sandra, infused new blood into another “primitive” film genre – sentimental romantic comedy. A naïve yet charming picture of a lone civil servant (Bullock) being mistaken for the fiancée of a comatose man with bushy eyebrows earned Sandra the first of her five Golden Globe nominations and became a movie screening classic for cozy lazy in the evenings.

“Miss Congeniality” (2000)

A comedy about an FBI agent in a skirt who is sent by her superiors to the Miss America beauty pageant, where a serial killer known as the Citizen is planning to appear. The best thing about comedy is Sandra’s duet, not with the handsome Benjamin Bratt, but with the brilliant Michael Caine as pretentious stylist Victor.

“Collision” (2004)

After devoting almost a decade to cashing checks for roles in comedies and thrillers, Bullock recalled her true acting talents by agreeing to the role of second violin in the crime drama “Collision”. Playing a wealthy racist, Sandra made the right decision: the film caused a sensation by winning the main “Oscar”.

“The Lake House” (2006)

A lonely female doctor (Bullock), who has settled in an unusual lakeside house, enters into a correspondence with a disillusioned architect (Keanu Reeves), a former inhabitant of this house, who personally created its project. A touching and aesthetic melodrama tells about the gradually blossoming love between the characters in different time spaces, living under the same roof.

“The Offer” (2009)

After a series of dramas experienced by the movie star on the personal front, the renaissance in Bullock’s career occurred towards the end of the 2000s, starting with a successful rom-com, where Sandra was the soloist as an office bitch, and Ryan Reynolds portrayed her accommodating subordinate. Surprisingly funny and not stupid, the film earned over $300 million worldwide, reminding of the commercial potential of the actress and becoming the starting point for her main film awards.

“The Blind Side” (2009)

In the fall of 2009, the whole intrigue in the “Oscar” category “Best Actress” came down to whether debutante Carey Mulligan had a chance in a duel with Meryl Streep. But winter came, and the balance of power changed: the moralizing drama with Bullock as a purposeful woman from the American South became her second 300 million hit in six months, and Sandra’s dramatic exit began to be showered with compliments and prizes, among which were the “Oscar” and the “Golden Globe”.

“Gravity” (2013)

Bullock’s Oscar triumph, despite the status of everyone’s favorite, had many questions, but time proved that the academics were not mistaken, although Sandra’s really best role – in the great space odyssey of Alfonso Cuaron – was left to be content with the nomination.
