Kate and Leopold flies on the sweet chemistry of Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman, the X-Men star who shows a real flair for romantic comedy. Ryan stars as Kate, a harried New York marketing exec who finds Mr. Right in Leopold (Jackman), another New Yorker. There's a catch: Leopold, the third Duke of Albany, has time-traveled from 1876 through a trick devised by Stuart (Liev Schreiber), Leopold's great-great-grandson and Kate's ex-boyfriend. She falls for the hunk's old-world chivalry. But, hey, if Kate connects with Leopold, does that make her Stuart's great-great-grandmother? No sweat. Director and co-writer James Mangold (Girl, Interrupted) is supplying comfort food for bruised romantics.

    “Madame George”

    Van Morrison | 1968

    One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
