''Letters to Juliet'' is a 2010 romantic drama starring Creator/AmandaSeyfried and Chris Egan, Vanessa Redgrave and [[Film/{{Django}} Franco Nero]]. It is the tale of Sophie, a young American who travels to the city of Verona, on a "pre-honeymoon" with [[DisposableFiance fiance Victor]] which was the home of the star-crossed lover Juliet Capulet of ''RomeoAndJuliet'' fame, where she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice about love while her fiance drives round northern Italy looking at mushrooms and cheeses.

One letter dated 1957 falls out from behind a brick and describes how a young British girl, Claire, left her lover, Lorenzo Bartolini, waiting under their tree and went back to England. Sophie replies to Claire which inspires Claire to travel to Italy in search of her long-lost love (dragging along her grandson Charlie). The three of them set off on a trip round Tuscany to find all the men named Lorenzo Bartollini. She will know the right one by his eyes. Sophie hopes to write an article on it for her magazine and earn a promotion to writer as she is only a fact-checker.

After finding many wrong men with the right name, including a blind one, a chess player and a kingpin, they find a dead one. Charlie is very upset with Sophie for disappointing his Grandmother tells her that his Gran is all he has now he's lost his parents and she doesn't know what real loss is. They make up at breakfast and Charlie later kisses Sophie under the stars. After finding the correct Lorenzo, Charlie is dismayed that he kissed Sophie since she's engaged to another man. She goes back to Verona and Charlie chases her but as he gets there he sees Victor hug her and so he leaves.

Victor and Sophie return to New York and her article will be published but her boss wonders how the story ended. Victor didn't even read her article and she breaks up with him and travels to Claire and Lorenzo's wedding alone. After a slight confusion between girlfriends and cousins with the same name, Sophie and Charlie admits their feeling via a balcony (of course) and kiss.

The End.
