Film: Serendipity

Serendipity is a 2001 film starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale as Jonathan Trager and Sara Thomas, who meet in Bloomingdale's after grabbing the same pair of gloves as a Christmas gift for their respective partners. Jonathan is attracted to Sara and asks her to give him her number, but when he loses it, Sara believes that they should let destiny determine whether or not they should be together. They are separated, left with nothing but one glove each from the same black pair they had seen in Bloomingdale's, and with no clues to finding each other but a five-dollar bill (on which Jonathan had written his name and number) and a copy of Love In The Time Of Cholera (in which Sara did the same) that they send out to the world for them to find. And no, they don't even know each other's full names when they get separated.

Six years later, Jonathan is engaged to Halley Buchanan and would be getting married in a few days, while Sara's boyfriend Lars Hammond proposes to her. Despite this, both of them continue trying to find the dollar bill and the book (although Sara's belief in supernatural phenomena has greatly decreased) and find themselves in a race against time and destiny in an attempt to meet again. Hilarity Ensues.
