Announcing Food 'n Flix for July: Letters to Juliet (I'm hosting)

 What if you had a second chance to find true love?

Would you take it?
Sophie is an aspiring writer who goes on a pre-honeymoon trip to Verona, Italy with her chef fiance, Victor.  While strolling alone one day Sophie discovers a beautiful old courtyard full of heartbroken women who have written letters to Juliet.  By accident she uncovers a letter written 50 years prior and feels compelled to answer the letter.  Working with a group, known as the secretaries of Juliet, she pens a compelling letter to the author of the 50 year old letter.  Sophie's heartfelt letter works as a catalyst which leads her and the others on an epic journey full of hope, longing, disappointment, and fulfillment.

Filmed against the beautiful backdrop of Verona, Italy,  Letters To Juliet is a feel-good romantic comedy about love lost and love found.  A sweet movie that we can all relate to.
