WRITTEN BY Jose Rivera, Tim Sullivan
DIRECTED BY Gary Winick

Amanda Seyfried (Dear John) plays a tourist in Verona, Italy, who discovers a wall where people leave letters seeking romantic advice from Juliet (of Shakespeare fame). She ends up helping one letter writer (Vanessa Redgrave) reunite with her long–lost love (Franco Nero) while falling for the woman’s grandson (Christopher Egan). Redgrave shot the PG-rated film shortly after the passing of her daughter Natasha Richardson. ”Those scenes run very deep,” says Seyfried. ”She had a very playful, clever spark while also being maternal.”
