Product Description

Amazon.ca

Letters to Juliet succeeds in being just what it's meant to be, a feel-good romantic comedy about love lost and love found, in which love triumphs in the face of cynicism. Inspired by the book of the same name, and filmed against the beautiful backdrop of Verona, Italy, the movie tells the story of how troubled young women seek advice from Shakespeare's Juliet by leaving letters tacked to a wall, where they are carefully answered by Juliet's self-appointed "secretaries." One such note is found 50 years later by Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), a young American woman who is soon to be married and who yearns to become a writer. Her heartfelt answer to the letter serves as a catalyst for an epic romantic journey that will span continents and generations. The success of the film lies in the powerful interaction between the wistfully romantic and fully mature author of the letter, Claire (Vanessa Redgrave); the romantically idealistic Sophie; and Claire's overly pragmatic, downright cynical grandson Charlie (Christopher Egan), who grudgingly accompanies his grandmother on what he deems an insane quest to Verona to find her long lost love, Lorenzo. The filmmakers, writers, and actors all capitalize well on the comic possibilities of the situation, and there are more than a few good chuckles to be had at the absurdity of the interactions between these three very different characters, as they experience everything from hope and longing to disappointment and unexpected fulfillment. In the end, each character grows and changes profoundly as a result of their shared journey. Sure, the events portrayed in the film are highly unrealistic, but that doesn't change the fact that the film speaks to that innermost part of us all that, despite all logic, makes us want to believe that true love really does exist and that it just might triumph in the end. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars How do you say, "cheeseball" in Italian? Sept. 18 2010
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Aspiring writer Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) and her fiancé go to Verona for a pre-honeymoon/business trip. He's obsessed with work and leaves poor Sophie to sightsee alone. She visits Juliet's famous house, where for generations lovelorn women have left letters asking for advice in Juliet's brick wall. The locals who answer the letters on Juliet's behalf invite Sophie to join them and her response to a 50-year old letter will change several lives forever.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun formula for those that like the formula Dec 3 2013
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) finds misplaced love letter years later and decides to bring the two lovers together to see what happens. It just happens to be in Italy. On the side Sophie finds that there may be a little romance of her own.

This film has everything needed for romance, cheesy acting, formula story, predictable twists, and great scenery. Oh yes there is music also "Show Me What I'm Looking For" by Carolina Liar.

Anyone that likes this formula can over look the fact that there is nothing unique. Do not look for any depth ore or insights.
