Story


"Letters to Juliet" is an enchanting love story - a tale of encountering new sparks and rekindling old flames. When Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), a young American, travels to Verona, Italy - the romantic city where Romeo first met Juliet - she meets a group of volunteers who respond to letters written to Juliet seeking romantic advice. Sophie finds and answers a letter that has been lost for 50 years, and is stunned when its author Claire (Vanessa Redgrave) arrives in Italy with her handsome but overprotective grandson (Christopher Egan) to find the fiance she left decades before. Fascinated by Claire's quest, Sophie joins them on an adventure through the beautiful hills of Tuscany searching for Claire's long lost Lorenzo. The journey will change their lives forever, as they discover it's never too late to find true love.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Scenic, sweet and a bit of a snore, Juliet is ostensibly about the thrill of true love, but lacks the racing pulse of fiery passion..”
by Dezhda Gaubert [E! Online]
“..If well done, a film like Letters To Juliet should need no surprises. But it does need more than the postcard-ready vistas against which director Gary Winick (13 Going On 30) frames much of the action..”
by Keith Phipps [A.V Club]
“..What light through yonder window breaks? 'Tis the fiery wrath of William Shakespeare, dragged back to this mortal coil to lend his cred to a dreadful chick flick..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
