Letters to Juliet is a 2010 romantic drama starring Amanda Seyfried and Chris Egan with Vanessa Redgrave. Directed by Gary Winick, the film was released theatrically in North America on May 14, 2010.

Sophie Hall (Amanda Seyfried) is a fact checker at The New Yorker magazine who dreams of becoming a writer, but her boss, Bobby, does not share her wishes. Sophie’s fiance, Viktor (Gael Garcia Bernal), is about to open an Italian restaurant in downtown New York. To celebrate, the two go on a “pre-honeymoon” to Verona, Italy. Sadly for Sophie, Viktor seems too preoccupied in finding the best wines and cheeses for his restaurant, he hardly has time for her. While he is out one day, Sophie goes sightseeing and comes across the house where Juliet Capulet supposedly lived and watches in awe as numerous people gather to write letters to Juliet about their loves and post them on Juliet’s wall.
