Wicker Park is a romantic thriller that was released in 2004. The movie is directed by Paul McGuigan and stars Josh Hartnett, Diane Kruger, and Matthew Lillard. The story is based on a French film called L'Appartement, which was released in 1996. The movie tells the story of Matthew (Josh Hartnett), a young advertising executive who lives in Chicago. Matthew is engaged to a woman named Rebecca (Jessica Pare), but he is haunted by memories of his former girlfriend, Lisa (Diane Kruger). He becomes convinced that he has seen Lisa on the street and begins to follow her. This leads him to a hotel where he meets a woman named Alex (also played by Diane Kruger). Alex claims not to know Lisa, but Matthew is convinced that she is lying.

As Matthew continues to search for Lisa, he begins to uncover a web of deceit and betrayal. He discovers that his friend Luke (Matthew Lillard) has been lying to him and that he may be involved in Lisa's disappearance. Matthew becomes obsessed with finding Lisa and ends up putting his relationship with Rebecca in jeopardy.

The movie is filled with twists and turns, as Matthew uncovers more and more about the people around him. The story is told in a non-linear fashion, with flashbacks and different perspectives, which can be a bit confusing at times. However, this technique adds to the suspense and keeps the audience engaged.

The performances in Wicker Park are strong, with Josh Hartnett delivering one of his best roles. He brings a lot of depth to his character, playing both the romantic and the obsessive sides of Matthew convincingly. Diane Kruger is also excellent in her dual role as Lisa and Alex, managing to keep the two characters distinct despite their similarities. Matthew Lillard is a bit over-the-top as Luke, but this works in the context of the movie.

The cinematography in Wicker Park is stunning, with beautiful shots of Chicago that add to the melancholic atmosphere of the film. The music is also a highlight, with a great soundtrack that includes songs by the likes of Radiohead, Coldplay, and Death Cab for Cutie.

Overall, Wicker Park is a stylish thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The plot may be convoluted at times, but the strong performances and beautiful visuals make it a worthwhile watch.

Wicker Park is a 2004 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 54 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.9 and a MetaScore of 40.
