Letters to Juliet

Just finished watching "Letters to Juliet" – I love the movie! If you’re looking for a romantic movie with a good ending (heck, make that two!), this is definitely one you should watch!

By the way, I loved the reply from Juliet to Claire – it’s so beautiful and it just really warms your heart knowing the ending of the story.

Here’s Claire’s letter to Juliet

I didn’t go to him, Juliet.

I didn’t go to Lorenzo. His eyes were so full of trust. I promised I’d meet him to run away together, because my parents don’t approve. But instead, I left him, waiting for me, below our tree, waiting and wondering where I was.

I’m in Verona now, I return to London in the morning, and I’m so afraid.

Please, Juliet, tell me what I should do… My heart is breaking and I have no one else to turn to.

Love,

Claire

And Juliet’s reply to Claire:

Dear Claire,

"What" and "if" are two words as non-threatening as words can be, but put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life. What if? What if? What if?

I don’t know how your story ended, but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late; if it was true then… why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow you heart.

I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like; a love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans for, but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I’d have to courage to seise it.

And Claire if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will.

All my love,

Juliet

One small trivia about those 2 letters – they are read-out slightly differently in the movie than the ones actually written…
