Wicker Park is a 2004 drama about a man's mysterious relationship with two different women. After living in New York for two years with his fiance'', Rebecca (Jessica Pare), Matt Simon (Josh Hartnett) returns to Chicago to take a new job. Shortly after arriving, he thinks he sees Lisa (Diane Kruger), a woman that he once loved very deeply who disappeared one day without a trace. With the assistance of his friend Luke (Matthew Lillard), Matt begins a desperate search to find her. He eventually finds her apartment and uses a borrowed key to break into it. When he does, he finds a woman living there who claims to be Lisa. In reality, however, the woman is actually named Alex (Rose Byrne), and she has been obsessed with Matt since he was dating Lisa. Desperate to get him for herself, she sabotaged his relationship with Lisa and began dating Luke to get closer to him. Ultimately, Matt must comb through Alex's web of deceit to learn what actually happened to Lisa and determine whether she still loves him.moreless
