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 from Rotten Tomatoes
Letters to Juliet represents an interesting paradox: it is a movie that is very nearly perfect without being especially good.A.O. Scott, New York Times, 07.07.2010
Not to be a cynic or anything, but maybe a fictional 13-year-old isn't the best source of advice for the lovelorn.Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, 07.07.2010
Redgrave brings a lovely gravity to the lightweight proceedings, while Seyfried again proves an unusually levelheaded presence.Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 07.07.2010
