When a young American travels to the city of Verona, home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of Romeo and Juliet fame, she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice about love. When she answers one letter dated 1957, she inspires its author to travel to Italy in search of her long-lost love and sets off a chain of events that will bring a love into both their lives, unlike anything they ever imagined.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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
"Cinematographer Marco Pontecorvo's sun-drenched palette would be a perfectly sound reason to see this film, but happily it's not the only one."
‑ Joy Tipping, Dallas Morning News
"a perfect date movie, with a nice blend of romance and light-hearted comedy"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"If you're in the mood for some school-girl daydream fairytale, Letters to Juliet about fits the bill, but even fans of this sort of thing are likely to find themselves short of patience well before the end."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"Pisma Juliji nije film koji će se dugo pamtiti, ali predstavljaju zanatski ispeglano ostvarenje koje neće razočarati ljubitelje svog anra"
‑ Dragan Antulov, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"As you might guess, after a great deal of sniping Sophie and Charlie supposedly fall for each other. But the audience never buys it."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"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
"Not even the ever-likable Seyfried at full-blast sun-kissed luminescence can win the battle against such trite, tired material nor make a viable leading man out of her pretty boy zero of a co-star."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Formulaic and telegraphic, there are no surprises in this chaste, passionless movie..."
‑ Elias Savada, Film Threat
"Winick ladles on the cliches with shameless abandon."
‑ Simon Foster, sbs.com.au
"An amusing, touching, reassuringly wholesome romantic travelogue of a film that flies by on its way to the inevitable happy ending."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"... while [Vanessa] Redgrave can't cut the clichés out of Letters to Juliet entirely, she at least cuts through them occasionally."
‑ James Rocchi, MSN Movies
"... Succeeds on the basis of pure delight, the optimism it emits and an earned happily-ever-after ending."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"It's all rather pleasant, but it's also all rather conventional."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"The picture never looks fussed-over or flattened -- it breathes, as opposed to just looking merely pretty."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Movieline
