I watched “Letters to Juliet” the other evening and couldn’t believe my eyes, there were the star-crossed lovers that coloured my teenage years, and they were together again………………….Guinevere and Lancelot.
I’ve lost track of how many times I saw this film, I also had the sound track and was simply lost in the medieval world of chivalry and romance. I was completely enthralled by the romance which blossomed after the film between Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero, it made up for doomed love in the legend.
The film, their romance in it and off-screen had always remained a romantic yardstick for me, even though their off-screen relationship did not last long after their son was born.
Then there out of the blue, there they are together, on-screen, again……….and in a film where they find each other after many years apart after a misunderstanding.
So……..after a little bit of googling, I found out to my delight they are together again. Who says there cannot be Happy Ever Afters even if it is 40 years later!
“I can’t tell you exactly when we got back together. It’s grown and grown over the years. “I adore my boy’s father, my Franco. Getting back together, there’s that bonus of discovering that I was right to fall in love with him in the first place. “
