I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I am a sucker for love stories. Hopeless romantic, that’s me. “Letters to Juliet” is a movie with a big message, it’s never too late to find true love. The concepts in the movie are easy to relate to: love lost, being confused and hurt by love, falling in love while you’re already in love. My theory has always been, when you can relate to a movie you almost always will enjoy it.

The premise of this romantic comedy is that an American girl on vacation in Italy finds an unanswered “letter to Juliet” stuffed in the wall of the fictional lover’s Verona courtyard. She goes on a quest to find the lovers referenced in the letter. The role of Sophie is played by Amanda Seyfried. Also cast are Vanessa Redgrave and Christopher Egan.

For whatever reasons, we do not always end up with our true love and this movie explored that idea. The movie takes you on a love trip, all the while teaching very important lessons: never give up on love, don’t settle, and sometimes love fades.

It literally kept a smile on my face the entire time. I took the trip with the charismatic characters in the movie and I really felt the emotion within the film and was completely caught up in the story.

I feel that “Letters to Juliet” is a film that people will enjoy because they can understand it. I must point out that when I looked over at my fiance’, he looked bored to tears. He later confessed, however, that he too enjoyed the film.

At pivotal moments of the movie, I glanced down the row and my fellow moviegoers and I were clearly on the same page. We laughed, wiped tears and smiled together. The movie evoked emotion.

I would suggest seeing the movie with people who enjoy love, are in love, or are female because it really is a chick flick. Heartbroken people will hate the film, guys may get love overloaded and love skeptics will question everything too much.

I’m Danni and love should be my middle name!
