Ellie (Jones) finds a love letter from the 1960s that reads like it was exchanged between star-crossed lovers. The young journalist’s interest is piqued enough to start an investigation into the identities of the writer and recepient, and how their love story ended. This is the plot of The Last Letter from Your Lover, the film based on Jojo Moyes’ novel of the same name.

The plot is reminiscent of Letters to Juliet so that is why it may feel like a familiar story, if you haven’t read Moyes’ book. However, as the story of Jennifer (Woodley) and Anthony (Turner) unfolds, we get to see that theirs was more than a summer romance. It was the very definition of complicated. The last movie adaptation of Moyes’ book we were served was Me Before You, which if you have watched, will tell you that this woman is a master at sweet tearjerkers. The Last Letter from Your Lover definitely hits those notes. But it is not just the story that the film has going for it.

The cast also pulls you in, with Felicity Jones leading the pack. Her curiosity and pursuit of the story is so infectious that you get to truly care about how the story ends. Woodley, Turner and Cross play off the tension among them beautifully that it is easy to love the two and hate the one. Finally, the music, gosh the music! It will get you in your feelings even when you swear that they are non-existent. A sweet, uncomplicated movie on the whole.
