When a young American, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), travels
to Verona, Italy - the city of love and home of star-crossed
lovers Romeo & Juliet - she meets a group of volunteers who
responds to letters written to Juliet seeking advice about love.
After answering one lost, 50-year-old letter, she inspires its
author (Vanessa Redgrave) to travel to Italy and embark on a
journey to search for her long-lost love. This sets off a chain
of events that brings a love into both their lives unlike anything
they ever imagined, and gives Sophie the courage to discover
herself and follow her heart.
