The Love Letter

Directed by Peter Chan
United States, 1999
Comedy, Drama, Romance

Synopsis

In this kooky romance, a love letter — unaddressed, unsigned and unbridled in its passion — turns up in a bookstore in a tiny New England town. Soon the sleepy burg bustles with speculation about the author’s identity.

Critics reviews

I suspect that a fair amount of the wit derives from Cathleen Schine’s source novel, but producer and lead actress Kate Capshaw (who plays the owner of the bookstore and has never been better), director Peter Ho-sun Chan (Comrades, Almost a Love Story), and screenwriter Maria Maggenti (who wrote and directed The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love) make a wonderfully harmonious team.
