Letters to Juliet - 6/10 stars
While on vacation in Verona, Sophie meets a group of ladies called the secretaries of Juliet. They respond to letters lovelorn women have written to Juliet Capulet. Sophie joins them and writes a very late response. The recipient of that letter is Claire. Claire comes to Verona with her grandson, Charlie and Sophie helps her find her long lost love. Along the way Sophie simultaneously realizes her fiance is not "the one", and falls in love with Charlie.
I think this movie came at just the right time. I've been watching a lot of serious movies lately and I was in the mood for something sweet and fun that didn't require me to think too much.
It was formulated and totally predictable, but that was offset by the warmth of the story. Vanessa Redgrave was splendid as Claire. Even though she was not the heroine, all of the most touching moments in the movie involved her character.
Letters to Juliet was fluffy, lighthearted and romantic. It was perfect for my mood at the moment, so I'll call this one a winner.
No worries rick tan, your credibility is intact!
