Plot Summary

On a magical night when they are in in their 20s, Jonathan (John Cusack) meets Sara (Kate Beckinsale). He finds it love at first sight, but Sara believes in destiny. After 10 years the two -- with 3,000 miles between them -- must decide if fate wants them to be together again. When love feels like magic, it is called destiny; when destiny has a sense of humor, it is serendipity.

    Serendipity returns us, if only for a couple of hours, to the Manhattan of our dreams.

    Contrived and schematic, Peter Chelsom's film is a mechanical bird that never takes wing. show more

    Serendipity is "Sliding Doors" with no alternate versions; it's willed enchantment all the way.
