Letters To Juliet. Sophie: "I think it's a story worth telling." Letters to Juliet is a nice romantic, drama movie to enjoy while getting your Tuscan taste buds wet. The plot is Sophia finds a love letter behind a loose rock in a wall dedicated to Juliet Capulet and this begins Sophie's journey to help the letter's author, Claire, find her long-lost love of her life.
My daughter Jacqueline is young and single and thinks this movie is AMAZING and even though we've both seen it before we watched it together again. She likes cute boy, love interest to Sophie, Charlie. There is letter writing in this movie and that is archaic in these days of electronic information, instant gratification. Where have love letters gone and the pining for them to arrive in the mail? Here are the words in the letter that Sophie wrote to Claire from the movie:
LETTER TO CLAIRE:
"'What' and ‘if’ two words as nonthreatening
as words come. But put
them together side-by-side and they
have the power to haunt you for the
rest of your life: ‘What if?'..."
"I don't know how your story ended.
But I know that if what you felt
then was love - 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 that
feels like... a love to leave loved
ones for, a love to cross oceans
for... but I'd like to believe if I
ever felt it, I'd have the courage
to seize it. I hope you have the
courage to seize it, Claire. And if
you don't, I hope one day that you
So love is just one reason my daughter liked the movie. I liked it for this reason too, but also for the scenery and houses featured in the movie. Like I said above, it wets your appetite for Tuscany. You probably already knew I was going to say that since I am all about houses.
Just love the color washed wall and architecture. So many balconies are seen in the Letter's To Juliet movie. This is Sophia's "chef" fiance Victor (played by Gael Garcia Bernal) Sophia and Victor are in Italy for a kind of pre-Honeymoon trip, but Victor is all about the food in Italy and ignores Sophia.
Lonely Sophia (played by Amanda Seyfried) spies the Casa Di Giulietta. which means Juliet's House. Casa Di Giulietta is located in Verona, Italy and where some of the filming took place.
The wall where the love letters are left to be answered. Per Jerry Garrett, in real life the love letters are left here and they really are answered.
