The Last Letter from Your Lover

Two love stories half a century apart intertwine in this adaptation of Jojo Moyes' best-selling novel starring Golden Globe-nominee Shailene Woodley (Big Little Lies) and Oscar-nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything). Co-stars Joe Alwyn (The Favourite), Callum Turner (Emma.) and Nabhaan Rizwan (1917).

Jennifer (Woodley) lives a luxurious life with her wealthy and powerful husband Laurence (Alwyn). When an unfortunate event wipes her memory, she struggles to find her identity until she stumbles upon wistful love letters hidden in her home. The passionate notes unravel a star-crossed love affair she had with foreign correspondent Anthony O’Hare (Turner) and ultimately lead her to discover her true self. Jennifer’s story becomes intertwined with that of Ellie (Jones), a whip-smart journalist in contemporary London, who discovers and becomes enthralled by these love letters from a bygone era. As she begins to piece them together with the help of archivist Rory (Rizwan), she sets off on a journey that will entangle the two women’s lives forever.

The formula is engrossing enough, and its midcentury vintage appeal - the pillbox hats, headscarves and swanky soirees - is particularly seductive.

A double-decker romance that sighs, squeals and fitfully delivers.

There's something subliminally enjoyable about it.

Not quite a charming romcom and not nearly the sweeping romance it thinks it is, the film finds an airless middle ground...

Endearing and consuming, but by no means surprising...

Odd-choice director Augustine Frizzell brings chic visual style to this otherwise generically watchable, timeline-crossing romance.

The whole production is undeniably pleasant but also a little lazy, with dialogue that sags under heavy exposition.

At best, it’s a suitable companion piece to the novel; at worst, it’s a lackluster feature bolstered only briefly by flashes of real human emotion.
