Trivia

The idea for the film was inspired by the 2006 non-fiction book, "Letters to Juliet", by Lise Friedman and Ceil Friedman, which chronicles the phenomenon of letter writing to William Shakespeare's most famous romantic heroine. See more »

Goofs

Charlie Wyman is Claire Smith's grandson, the son of her son, but his last name is different than hers. If she was only married once, per the plot, then her current last name should also be her son's and her grandson's. However, this is not a goof. The name "Claire Smith" was written on Claire's letter to Juliet, which Claire wrote back in 1957, when she was only 15 years old; she wasn't married yet at that time. In other words, "Smith" is Claire's maiden name. So after her husband died, she apparently chose to change back to her maiden name, and that explains the difference. See more »

Coulda been a classic, but
23 May 2010 | by TVfanSee all my reviews

Really enjoyed this film. A very good story, that had many good moments, one in particular -- if you've seen the film, you know which one I'm talking about. Redgrave made this film. She is amazing, and she gave the story believability. But the film could have been a classic. Two things got in the way. 1) The story was just a little too light, seems like they were trying too hard to make a romantic comedy, instead of letting it be what it was -- probably the money people were responsibly for that one. 2) The two leads were somewhat unlikable, with zero chemistry. She was OK, but he was a Hugh Grant caricature. The pacing of their relationship was way too fast to be believable. I think this story is good enough to be remade, and I think it should be - with a different Sophie and a different Charlie, and maybe a little (please note I said a "little") more serious tone. Other than Sophie and Charlie, I think the film was very well cast.
