Sometimes, time stands ajar, illusioned through conversations overplayed in our heads, scents of perfumes tangled in silhouettes, and even syllables stained over pages. Netflix’s The Last Letter From Your Lover does this by design. Shailene Woodley, Joe Alwyn, Callum Turner, and Felicity Jones make up the star-studded cast of the upcoming drama.
A journalist (Jones) is transported out of her pastel office into an illicit love story mosaiced by a bunch of letters dating back to the 1960s. The characters in the story that is laid out by the letters feature are the typical suspects: a married woman (Woodley), her self-absorbed husband (Arwyn), and a dreamy and presumably off-limits writer (Turner). The woman and writer fall in love, and they share their feelings with each other via the letters. As the journalist is swept away in the romance and passion of it all, she stumbles upon a surprising discovery: the two writers of the letters are still alive.
While the film is set for a July 23 release date, you can watch the trailer below.
