Every movie can’t be academy award material. Sometimes the critics are really harsh, especially when it comes to comedies/girl movies, and more so if the reviewer is a man. But last night I saw Letters to Juliet, and it was a total delight. A bit slow in the beginning, but it found it’s groove and it was so much fun. A lot of it was filmed in Tuscany, the scenery was breathtaking, it was like going on a mini-vacation. It reminded me of a good Harlequin Romance, just a movie instead of a read.
So if you’re bored this summer, and it’s still on, give it a watch. Vanessa Redgrave is just lovely, there is an “older” man that is totally “hot” and Amanda Seyfried is one of my favorite young actresses. She’s so fresh faced, so wholesome looking, which is nice for a change, and she’s a great little actress, too.
It was a fun escape, give it a try. ~ jan
