Star Rating:

'The Last Letter from Your Lover' probably works better as a book

In 1965, after suffering an accident which has left her scarred and amnesiac, Jennifer Stirling (Shailene Woodley), is feeling distant from her husband, Laurence (Joe Alwyn), and from herself. Slowly, she begins to recall a trip abroad, upon which she began a relationship with a journalist named Anthony O’Hare (Callum Turner). In the present day, Ellie Haworth (Felicity Jones), is something of a hot mess, having just gotten out of a long term relationship, and also working as a journalist. She finds some letters that Jennifer and Anthony wrote to one another and, with the help of her colleague Rory (Nabhaan Rizwan), goes about investigating who these people were and how their love story ended.
