Looking to swoon and be intrigued at the same time? The Last Letter From Your Lover may be the film for you. The romantic drama follows two epic love stories unfolding at once, 50 years apart. Both of the storylines become intertwined when a contemporary female journalist tracks down a couple from the 1960s through hand-written letters she finds in books. The film’s twist may surprise you. If you’re left wondering whether the film was based on a real story or not, you’re not alone. We can help.
As aforementioned, there are two storylines at the core of The Last Letter From Your Lover: the story of an affair between Jennifer Stirling (Shailene Woodley), the wife of wealthy businessman Larry Stirling (Joe Alwyn), and 1960s foreign correspondent Anthony O’Hare (Callum Turner), as well as modern-day journalist and struggling romantic Ellie (Felicity Jones) and formal archivist Rory (Nabhaan Rizwan). Though the stories take place in different places and in disparate decades, a hidden connection brings them together, unpredictably.
