kate-&-leopold

So the movie my dad made me watch was Kate and Leopoldo and of course my brain decided to Rumbelle it.

Think of it. I found two possibilities. One, Rumple is a Scottish nobleman who after a disastrous marriage is not keen on romance. He follows a peculiar man who crashed his son’s engagement party and finds himself in the 21st century. Jefferson is his descendent who discovered the ability to travel in time. Gold happens to need the man’s pretty neighbor, Belle French and soon finds himself falling for her. But he has to return back to his time because of his son. Little does he know, Jefferson is descended from Gold’s second wife, who is Belle herself who decides to return with him to the pass.

Or, swap it. Belle is from the past and in an eagerness to escape an arranged marriage winds up in the future where she meets Mr. Gold, a single father with a young son. He thinks the girl is crazy at first with her ignorance of modern technology, but Bae is taken with her. Soon, Gold finds himself falling for her as well. I think Belle would wind up staying in the future in this case.

So what do you think? Any takers? Or does anyone else have an idea inspired by this film?

Leopold: That thing is a damned hazard!
Kate: It’s just a toaster!
Leopold: Well, insertion of bread into that so-called toaster produces no toast at all, merely warm bread! Inserting the bread twice produces charcoal. So, clearly, to make proper toast it requires one and a half insertions, which is something for which the apparatus doesn’t begin to allow! One assumes that when the General of Electric built it, he might have tried using it. One assumes the General might take pride in his creations instead of just foisting them on an unsuspecting public.
Kate: You know something? Nobody gives a rat’s ass that you have to push the toast down twice. You know why? Because everybody pushes their toast down twice!
Leopold: Not where I come from.
Kate: Oh, because where you come from, toast is the result of reflection and study!
Leopold: Ah yes, you mock me. But perhaps one day when you’ve awoken from a pleasant slumber to the scent of a warm brioche smothered in marmalade and fresh creamery butter, you’ll understand that life is not solely composed of tasks, but tastes.
Kate: Say that again.
Leopold: Pardon me?
