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

“.."Letters to Juliet" is lightweight, certainly, but don't underestimate the pleasurable emotions this film stirs. Even cynics need the occasional feel-good moment..”
by Robert W. Butler [Kansas City Star]
“.."Letters to Juliet" is an ode to romance of the most starry-eyed sort, a sugary paean to quixotic cliches and a film destined to be a guilty pleasure for some (me included, sigh) and the painful price of a relationship for others (so steel yourselves)..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
“..a case of art imitates life imitates art. If that makes it a tribute to a tribute to a classic, then it is no less enjoyable for that..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
