This movie is about strangers helping other strangers fall in love, by tracking down former love interests and writing letters. Amanda Seyfried has an interesting role in this movie since it is kind of different from the characters that she usually plays. My major issue with this movie though, is that it seemed like there was a lot of fluff moments incorporated into things that didn’t really have an impact on the overall movie. The tone and the theme of the film was pretty heartwarming, but it also could have been summed up in ten minutes. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars.

Have to agree with commenter, jomac_05, the acting simply wasn't up to par, although very nice scenery, including Amanda Seyfried, always a pleasure to watch.

Vanessa Redgrave is gracefully wonderful.

In today's film world, where CGI, and explosion and profanity laden movies seem to be the norm, this is a refreshing and welcome change that harkens back to what makes for great cinema. Letters to Juliet reminds us what redeeming values we can take from a good film. Amanda Seyfried is absolutely enchanting and the cinematography is among the most beautiful seen in recent film. These movies, this, Midnight in Paris, and To Rome with Love owe so much to the classic Audrey Hepburn movie Roman Holiday, and like the 1953 classic, here you have on display, fine acting, gorgeous scenery, and two lead characters who are played as real and genuine as you can get for a film. I call these films Picture Postcards, as here,you get to see in full view the grand city of Verona. I especially love how the relationship between Seyfried's character and the young male lead, assist in bringing the older couple to one another. Truly a pleasure and I couldn't recommend this any more than I have.

Actress Amanda Seyfried as Sophie, seeking true love in a sort of mixed Italian soup of Verona, Shakespeare, and out-takes from Romeo and Juliet. B+ acting from youthful Seyfried, but all can be forgiven, since the story captures the heart, and Redgrave delivers a shining performance. Overall this movie works. It's a keeper.

Claire: [Addressing the wedding party] "Dear friends, fifty years ago, I went to Juliet's house in Verona. I wrote her a letter and asked her a question. And two months ago, I received a reply. And without that letter, none of us would be here today. [Claire begins to read Sophie's letter to her]
'Dear Claire, WHAT and IF are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side by side, and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life. What if?, What if?, What if? I don't know how your story ended, but if what you felt then was true love, then it's never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn't it be true now?
You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don't know what a love like Juliet's feels like; love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for. But I'd like to believe, if I ever were to feel it, that I'd have the courage to seize it. And Claire, if you didn't, I hope one day that you will. All my love, Juliet.' "

Sophie: I didn't go to him, Juliet. I didn't go to Lorenzo. His eyes were so full of trust I promised I'd meet him and run away together because my parents don't approve. But, instead, I left him waiting for me below our tree - waiting and wondering where I was. I'm in Veronoa now. I return to London in the morning and I am so afraid. Please, Juliet tell me what I should do. My heart is breaking and I have no one else to turn to. Love, Claire
