Letters to Juliet

We went to see "Letters to Juliet" today. 

It had been recommended, but I was not impressed.  It was a "romance novel" put to film.  It didn't work.  

Good Points:  The scenery in Italy was spectacular.  Vanessa Redgrave is always wonderful to watch.  

The plot was not realistic.  The first half of the film was slow; the second half picked up.  However, it was a forgone conclusion that the heroine would dump her "workaholic" fiancé.  Then, she would end up with her other love interest.  The final scene was almost "cult" quality.  Really, a balcony with Juliet and Romeo climbing the grape vine to propose.  It was a little too much.

It was a good diversion from our usual day off.  However, it should have gone on our "rent" instead of pay at the theater" list.
