An American girl discovers a love letter that changes her life in this romantic comedy starring Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgrave. The setting is Verona, Italy -- the city where Romeo and Juliet first met. In Verona, there's a wall where the lovelorn leave notes, hoping that Juliet will answer their inquiries about love. Sophie (Seyfried) is part of a team of volunteers who respond to the letters. When Sophie answers a letter from 1957, the woman who wrote it (Redgrave) decides to seek out the one that got away, and romance starts to blossom all around. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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
