Romeo's true love wasn't a real person, but that doesn't keep women from writing her notes about their own romantic trials ... in this movie, at least, which boasts lovely Italian scenery.
Amanda Seyfried ( "Mamma Mia!") plays an American in Verona who decides to respond to the missives addressed to Shakespeare's heroine, ultimately bringing her in contact with a counsel-seeking character played by Vanessa Redgrave (whose real-life spouse, Franco Nero, also appears here). DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Seyfried and director Gary Winick; deleted and extended scenes. *** (PG: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
