Letters to Juliet (Review)

The movie “Letters to Juliet” is a representation of endless love and unsatisfied love relationship. The character Claire is a symbol of endless love trying to imply that love has no barrier and no expiry date. Sophie is a symbol of an unsatisfied relationship with her fiancé Victor, who is more interested about cuisines. The movie is interesting with good humor, and emotions are portrayed with real life that you enjoy them.

The film starts as our heroine Sophie, who is a fact checker of a New York based magazine travel to Italy to open a restaurant by her fiancé. They land up in Verona-the place of endless and unselfish love, the spirit of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet lives. When Sophie’s fiancé Victor goes in search of the perfect truffle for his new restaurant, Sophie sets out to explore Verona alone. She visits Juliet Capulet’s house and finds the place as realistic as what Shakespeare has described. She finds a sort of Wailing Wall and finds letters left by several woman querying about their unsuccessful relationship and seeking advice. Many of these are answered by the members of “Club di Giulietta” who incorporates Sophie to their wing.

Sophie finds an unanswered 50 year old letter hidden in the Wailing Wall and answers it. Claire now Vanessa Redgrave and responds to the letter by Sophie, and returns back to Verona to find out her lost love Lorenzo together with her grandson Charlie. The three of them sets out to find out Lorenzo. On their mission, sees many phony Lorenzo’s but moved on with their strong determination.

There is much happy news to the viewers as the movie ends well. The attempt by the Director Gary Winick is sincere to an extent and the movie can be rated above average, and can be viewed with all the family members.
