letters to juliet
Well, I had a wonderful movie night with a bunch of friends and sisters:) Is so great that we could share our laughter and tears together while watching the Letters To Juliet... Love is splendid and grand and, in case you were wondering, nowhere does it “lift us up where we belong” quite as grandly as in fair Verona, where the movie — like Shakespeare — lays its scene.
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” Quote from William Shakespear’s ‘Romeo and Juliet‘
There is something to be said about a romance that lasts, and keeps the hope of love alive for as long as Romeo and Juliet has. They are the epitome of true love, and their story will continue to keep making it’s way into the mainstream.
Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is a fact checker for a newspaper,with the hopes of becoming a writer. She and her fiancé’ are about to take a trip to Italy before the wedding, since he has a new restaurant opening very soon. This will be their honeymoon, before the wedding. Little did she know that while in Tuscany, her fiancé would be more worried about finding ingredients and recipes for his restaurant rather than spending a romantic honeymoon with her.
During her time alone, Sophie visits the home of Juliet, where women from all over write letters to her and place them on a wall. Sophie is fascinated by this, and ends up helping the Secretary’s of Juliet respond to the letters, when a brick falls out of the wall, exposing a very old letter. Sophie responds and the next thing she knows, the woman who wrote the original letter, Claire (Vanessa Redgrave), has come back to Tuscany to find her Lorenzo that she stood up 50 years ago. With nothing left to do, Sophie tags along as Claire and her less than eager grandson Charlie (Christopher Egan) on their adventure to find Claire’s true love.
Vanessa Redgrave is fantastic in her role. She is funny, passionate, and quite splendid to watch on screen. It is inspiring to see that she has never really given up on true love. Amanda Seyfried is always appealing on screen. Christopher Egan is absolutely charming.
Still, the movie was romantic and fun! I fell in love with the views of Italy as they made their way throughout the villages in their quest for Lorenzo. This is a movie for anyone that believes in romance and true love.
"l'amore ed il destino sono nell'aria, la afferrano prima è troppo ritardati" ~ this means love and destiny are in the air, grab it before is too late.so, express your love to the people you really love and care coz there are no expiry date for true love.
