Review:

Rejoice if you are a film fan who believes in second chances and true love.***

In the new movie "Letters to Juliet" Sophie, (Amanda Seyfried) a fact checker for The New Yorker and her fiancé Victor (Gael García Bernal), a self-centered chef, take a pre-honeymoon trip to Italy, but unexpected circumstances split them apart.***

As Sophie adventures into the city of Verona, she comes upon a courtyard where women are crying while writing to Juliet for answers about love, loss and relationships. They place the folded letters in the cracks of the decrepit stonewall in the courtyard and hope for a response.***

Sophie learns that the letters are written to Juliet of "Romeo and Juliet" and are answered by a group of women who called themselves Juliet's secretaries.***

Intrigued after finding a 50-year-old letter stuck behind a stone, Sophie decides to write back to Claire, the writer of the old letter.***

Less than one week later, Claire and her grandson, Charlie, (Christopher Egan) arrive in Verona and go on an adventure to find her true love she left more than 50 years ago. The story might seem cliché with promises of love and second chances; Seyfried and Egan play out a foreseen romance, even though Sophie is engaged to Victor. As they adventure to find Lorenzo, Claire's lost lover, the growing space between Sophie and Victor becomes undeniable.***

As Claire is on her adventure to find Lorenzo, Sophie is on her own quest to find her voice as a writer, not just as a fact checker. While Sophie is traveling across Italy with Claire and Charlie, Victor is traveling as well, looking for suppliers for his new restaurant, without even giving his fiancée a second thought. I am not going to give away the ending, even though it is pretty easy to guess, but this movie is definitely a chick flick, so for all you daughters out there who believe true love lasts forever, take your mother or your girlfriends to this feel-good movie.***

Special Features:

Blu-ray:

Audio commentary with director and cast/ Deleted and extended scenes/ The Making of Letters to Juliet: in Italia/ A Courtyard in Verona/

Final Words:

When it comes to talking about love, you are never too late and "Letters to Juliet" will keep you believing just that.***
