Movie: Letters to Juliet



Gary Winick (CHARLOTTE’S WEB, 13 GOING ON 30) directs LETTERS TO JULIET, a heartwarming romantic comedy written by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Jose Rivera (MOTORCYCLE DIARIES). When aspiring magazine writer SOPHIA MARCUS and would-be restaurateur VICTOR fly from New York to Italy for a vacation, the stage seems set for some much-needed romance in their relationship—especially since their destination is the city of Verona, home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of ROMEO AND JULIET fame.

But Victor is far more interested in finding suppliers for his future restaurant than in wooing Sophia, who ends up getting a vicarious romantic fix from an unlikely source: she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters that pour into Verona from around the world—letters to Juliet seeking advice about love. One such letter that Sophia responds to dates back to 1951 and came from one CLAIRE SMITH, an Englishwoman who fell in love with a young Italian man in her youth but let the opportunity slip away.

To Sophia’s surprise, her letter inspires Claire, now a grandmother, to travel to Verona in search of her long-lost love— accompanied by her grandson CHARLIE. With Victor wrapped up in his culinary quest, Sophia, Charlie and Claire scour the beautiful Italian countryside in search of Claire’s long-lost love. In the process, romance blossoms in unexpected ways, eventually facing Sophia with the very advice she wrote in her letter to Claire. Will she find the courage to seize love or—like Claire—spend a lifetime regretting the road not taken?


Going to watch this tonight!!! Yeah!!!
Will update my review about it after watching it =)

Next week watching IP Man: The Legend is Born =)


Updated Review:
The movie is good!
Romantic, funny and soooooooo sweet~~

I especially love the part where they went searching for the 84 Lorenzo to find the correct one and one of these Lorenzo has a wife which shouted "TAKE HIM! TAKE HIM!" cause that guy is too irritating. hahahaha! watch the trailer at 1.21' the trailer only shows the woman shouting once but in the movie she keep shouting and so dramatic!


and i just love this song in the movie


We were both young when I first saw you.
I close my eyes, and the flashback starts,
I'm standing there,
On the balcony in summer air.

I see the lights, see the party, the ballgowns.
See you make your way through the crowd,
And say, "Hello",
Little did I know,

That you were Romeo,
You were throwing pebbles,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet."
And I was crying on the staircase,
Begging you, "Please don't go".

And I said,
"Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting, all that's left to do is run.
You be the prince, and I'll be the princess,
It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'."

So I sneak out to the garden to see you,
We keep quiet, 'cause we're dead if he knew,
So close your eyes,
Escape this town for a little while.

'Cause you were Romeo,
I was a scarlet letter,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet."
But you were everything to me, I was
Begging you, "Please don't go".

And I said,
"Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting, all that's left to do is run.
You be the prince, and I'll be the princess,
It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'."

"Romeo, save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel.
This love is difficult, but it's real.
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess,
It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'."

Well, I got tired of waiting,
Wondering if you were ever coming around.
My faith in you was fading,
When I met you on the outskirts of town.

And I said,
"Romeo, save me, I've been feeling so alone.
I keep waiting for you, but you never come.
Is this in my head,
I don't know what to think,"

You knelt to the ground,
And pulled out a ring and said,
"Marry me, Juliet, you'll never have to be alone.
I love you, and that's all I really know.
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress,
It's a love story, baby just say yes."

We were both young when I first saw you...
