MAMMA MIA!'s Amanda Seyfried stars in this romantic drama set in Verona, Italy. A young American journeys to the town, where she becomes a volunteer, answering letters addressed to Shakespeare's Juliet that ask for the fictional young character's advice on love. When an older woman (Vanessa Redgrave) receives her response, she too travels to Italy, where romance is on the itinerary for both women.
