Review: Letters to Juliet

I finally got to see Letters to Juliet tonight. 

See the trailer here.

Sophie is in Italy on a pre- honeymoon/work trip with her fiance when she finds an unanswered letter to Juliet. The letter was written 50 years ago and she feels she has to write back, beginning her journey with the author of the letter (and her grandson) to find her love from 50 years ago. 

First off, the first time I watched the trailer, I got goosebumps. That was when I knew I had to see it. The movie did not disappoint.

I'm a fan of mindless, predictable love stories. I think they are cute. This is not one of those. I got so into this movie, it was like I could feel their passion. I loved the passion Claire felt for Lorenzo. I loved the passion Sophie had for love and life. Not so much the passion her fiance had for food and cooking over her.

Sophie is such a great character, and Amanda Seyfried plays her perfectly. I had that crying feeling through the last half hour of the movie. Yes, I'm one of those girls.

I'm not one to have too many favorite movies, but this is definitely a favorite on my list. I can't wait to own it and see it again.
