Letters to Juliet *Movie Review*


Movie Summary:

Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), a fact checker living in New York has a good life: A job, friends, a fiance that doubles as a chef opening his own restaurant.

And to top it all off, she gets to go on a pre-wedding honeymoon to Italy! Too bad it's to visit potential suppliers for Victor's (Gael Garcia Bernal) restaurant...

Arriving in Italy and realizing taking tours of cheese factories and visiting 'truffles' in dark forests isn't quite her forte, Sophie takes off on her own to sight see and runs into the Juliet wall; where heartbroken woman to go to write to Juliet and ask her for advice on matters of the heart.

That's where she finds a letter written nearly 50 years ago by a broken-hearted girl; She has to write this poor girl back!

That letter sets into motion what Sophie regards as destiny. However, destiny has quite the long, winding, emotional journey in store for Sophie!

My Thoughts:

**Grab the tissues ladies (and some gentlemen)**

Unlike many of the romantic movies out there today that are completely and totally unrealistic, this movie has you believing you can take an impromptu trip to Italy and go on an amazing journey to find your one true love.

(adorable-yet-totally-aggravating British guy included Lol)


The characters are all deliciously adorable and so relatable! It's like you could take a walk this very moment and meet your own personal Sophie along the way :)

While some viewed this as just a romantic movie, I really thought it was much, much more! I was seriously on the edge of my seat the whole time ready to shout at the movie screen when someone made the wrong move (and I'm known to talk back to my movies, too). My sister definitely looked at me like I was from outer space when I came home and told her I bawled through the whole thing. LOL

Besides the great movie, I think this is the start of a new star following-I seriously <3 Amanda Seyfried! She is such a wonderful actress and from the vibes she gives off, I can tell she's a down to earth person. I can't wait to see what other movies she's going to be in in the near future.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone!

Love and Energies.

I do really like Amanda Seyfried a lot. This is one of those movies I will for sure rent on Netflix.

I really want to see this movie... I'm sure I'll have to wait 'til it's on DVD because I know Bill will never want to see this. He is not into "chick-flicks."
