next stop, italy.
last weekend i saw letters to juliet with my mom and sister. i know, right? we're so exciting.
i didn't have very high expectations because these kind of movies are usually just cheeseballs, but i was pretty entertained. it was pretty much a brochure for traveling to italy, siena and verona, specifically. scenery was beautiful, and i loved the story line with juliet's secretaries. love that they keep that alive. the rest of the movie was kind of slow, and i wish that the characters would have been developed a little more.
that being said, amanda seyfried is just lovely and lights up the screen. and now i can't stop thinking about having long, blonde hair and traipsing around the italian countryside in sundresses. sigh.
and i loved how vanessa redgrave and franco nero, the romeo and juliet couple in the movie are married in real life. tender.
