The movie covers such an event - only the letter was left fifty years ago and was discovered by accident. An American tourist who is - which she does not as yet know - unhappy in love herself stumbles upon the Secretaries of Juliet and ends up responding which gets the events rolling. The letter writer arrives in Verona with her grandson who does NOT approve and the adventures begin.
The actors portraying the characters are magnificent - Amanda Siegfried of Mamma Mia fame fortifies her status as a rising star, Christopher Egan convinces as the doubtful romantic in waiting, as for Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero ... do I really need to mention their immense talent that they have shown in so many movies before? Writing and directing as well as locations, background and support cast do their bit to making this a wonderfully encouraging picture to see over and over and over again. Enjoy!
Plain and simple, an amusing 90 minute romp away from reality, filled with ridiculous plot lines, nonsensical delusions, and in short everything love is supposedly full of... that is why you should watch these things, you want to be in love for the price of a rental, ticket, etc.
All that being said is "Letters to Juliet" guilty of all these things. Well yes if you suspend your believe. First off, no one writes real letters anymore, no one writes letters that are in your hand, traveled to find you and came to your door with the "hope" of being a great letter!
That is the real premise of this story.
The fact that we get Amanda Seyfried (back to her romantic leading roots since debuting in Mama Mia) and the immortal Vanessa Redgrave as the female leads should tell you something. One is the classic beauty all women aspire to, the other is the latest in a long line of ditsy blonde protagonists Hollywood thinks all women seem to identify with... I'm not sure what actress would have made her part more believable, Seyfried is always likable, but do you fall "in love" with her? No, you want her to fall in love with the predictable leading man, she starts the movie off hating.
My one caveat is the balcony scene, which I suppose had to be in something with Juliet in the title. But one minute she's running, the next minute she appears from a balcony? Is she Spiderman? Okay I know, if I'm suspending my belief, her balcony climbing powers should be included...Read more ›
This has all the makings of a charming chick flick, telling an idealistic love story in a stunningly beautiful place. Verona and the Tuscan countryside are so gorgeous, I was ready to pack my bags and go. Seyfried makes a likable enough heroine; unfortunately she's paired with wooden Christopher Eagan who lacks depth, looks too young, and is a total cheeseball. The movie is saved by Vanessa Redgrave as the woman who wrote the letter decades ago. She's classy, confidant, and flawless and doesn't look like she's acting. Her reunited lost love is played wonderfully by Franco Nero who commands the screen even though his part is small. (Their obvious chemistry is for real; they were in love in the sixties, parted, and only recently reunited and married - good plot for a movie!)
It's a shame the story has such a Disney fairy tale-feel to it. One knows immediately everything that will happen and how it will end. It was too unbelievable and silly for me, although I think younger people would adore the movie. Recommended for those who love picturesque Italy.
