Letters to Juliet (2010) movie review

Letters from Lovers


When aspiring magazine writer SOPHIA MARCUS and would-be restaurateur 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 And Juliet fame.

Letters to Juliet follows two relationships, Sophia and Victor on their 'pre-honeymoon' and the older woman Claire whose letter inspires Sophia to write to her.

Sophia and Victor are about to be married, yet in the romantic setting of Verona they are following their own paths, he is investigating local produce and she, left to her own devices, joins the secretaries of Juliet and then Claire and her grandson as they search the surrounding region for Claire's lost love.

What if you had a second chance to find true love?

Letters to Juliet is an unabashed romance that concerns itself with the person as well as the romantic goals. As the trio travel Italy, Sophia, a fact-checker in New York, finds her voice as an author, and builds a friendship with the woman and grandson.

Victor steps in an out of the story, using punctuated by his trademark cry, "Win, win", which to him means, "I have what I want."

A beautiful setting and characters on a journey, this film takes us along for a short and undemanding while.
