As Sophie sets off on a romantic journey of the heart with the letter’s author, Claire (Redgrave), now a grandmother, and Claire’s handsome grandson (Egan), all three will discover that sometimes the greatest love story is your own.

Both the DVD and Blu-ray versions of Letters to Juliet contain the following special features:
