When aspiring magazine writer Sophia Marcus and would-be restauranteur Victor fly from New York to Italy for a vacation, the stage seems set for some much-needed romance in their relationship - especially since their destination is the city of Verona, home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of Romeo & Juliet fame. But Victor is far more interested in finding suppliers for his future restaurant than in wooing Sophia, who ends up getting a vicarious romantic fix from an unlikely source; she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters that pour into Verona from around the world - letters to Juliet seeking advice about love. One such letter that Sophia responds to dates back to 1951 and came from one Claire Smith, an Englishwoman who fell in love with a young Italian man in her youth but let the opportunity slip away. To Sophia's surprise, her letter inspires Claire, now a grandmother, to travel to Verona in search of her long-lost love - accompanied by her grandson Charlie. With Victor wrapped up in his culinary quest, Sophia, Charlie and Claire scour the beautiful Italian countryside in search of Claire's long-lost love. In the process, romance blossoms in unexpected ways, eventually facing Sophia with the very advice she wrote in her letter to Claire. Will she find the courage to seize love or - like Claire - spend a lifetime regretting the road not taken?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Letters to Juliet represents an interesting paradox: it is a movie that is very nearly perfect without being especially good.
Rotten: Not to be a cynic or anything, but maybe a fictional 13-year-old isn't the best source of advice for the lovelorn.
Fresh: Redgrave brings a lovely gravity to the lightweight proceedings, while Seyfried again proves an unusually levelheaded presence.
Rotten: The story is as straight and obvious as raw spaghetti.
Worth Your Money
I've been checking everyday for movie!!! It was sad and sappy and predictable, but it gives you a beautiful feeling inside yourself!!! Saw it 3 times in theaters... :-) Do me a favor and atleast rent it!!!
The most romantic and heartwarming movie off all time!
When I saw this movie with my good friends, I barely noticed they were there. It seemed like I was in the movie. I was always yelling or shouting for joy at the screen. The theatre was probubLY annoyed with me, and i never got kicked out, but that night I saw the best movie ever created. I have a big romantic side to me, and this movie was perfect it could not have been better. The actors were amazing, the plot line untouchable, and it was not inappropiate at all. ( which makes me very happy because then i could never see it again) I would invite all audiences ato see this movie, either with a loved one,, friends, family, or even alone. Please take the time to see this movie. I promise it will be worth your while.
Letters to Juliet
Letters To Juliet is an inspiring story of a girl who just happens to find a missing piece to a large puzzle. Seyfried portrayed an exceptional character and may one day be the next Sandra Bulock. This movie gave the viewers a love story that left them speechless. The only question they have now is "Will there be a sequel?"
