Letters To Juliet (PG) - film review
By local film fan Emily Cook at Haverhill Cineworld on Wednesday, 23rd June 2010.
Wannabe journalist Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) and her fiancée Victor (Gael Garcia Bernal) go on a pre-wedding holiday to the romantic city of Verona, Italy, home to one of the greatest love stories ever written, Romeo and Juliet.
A chance encounter with a group of ladies calling themselves Juliet’s Secretaries sends Sophie on a journey of discovery to reunite long lost love and along the way her own true love is found.
Amanda Seyfried, (Sophie), is the attractive 20 something, with a healthy appetite for adventure, Vanessa Redgrave (Claire), the light-hearted Grandmother, who engages on a quest to rekindle her first love, accompanied by her hansom but over protective grandson Christopher Egan (Charlie).
In my opinion the composition of this film was well structured and easy to follow. The location suited the theme well, with spectacular scenery throughout.
Convincing performances by both Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgrave kept the film alive and enjoyable, with only the shortcoming, being that of Christopher Egan's English accent.
A feel good movie well suited for true romantics or a girly night out.
