The Love Letter


1h 28m 1999

Brief Synopsis

In the sleepy New England town of Loblolly By The Sea, a letter arrived that is going to wake things up. It is a love letter--ardent, sensual...and unsigned. Everybody who reads it wonders who it's for and speculates who it's from. As the letter falls into different hands, the residents in the small town start to eye one another with renewed interest. Determined to find the letter's author, Helen MacFarquhar begins a quest that will open her life to a new chapter involving two decidedly different men: George, an old friend from her past, and Johnny, a young man very much in her present. Will one of them decide her future? Unexpectedly, one mysterious love note has the power to unlock some startling secrets, changing the lives of everyone it touches.
