American magazine employee Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is on holiday in Italy with her husband-to-be Victor (Gael García Bernal).
In Verona, home of Shakespeare's star-cross'd lovers, she stumbles across a tradition whereby modern-day women cathartically leave notes about their love lives addressed to the fictional Juliet, and to which other modern-day women reply.
The note that catches Sophie's eye is from an English woman, Claire (Redgrave), detailing her lost Italian love.
Despite it languishing for decades, Sophie decides to respond to the note, little realising that she's just taken the first step on a romance-imbued journey of her own...
Also starring Franco Nero and Christopher Egan.
