In “Letters to Juliet,” Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) travels to Verona, where she discovers a secret network of women who answer letters written to Shakespeare’s most famous heroine, Juliet. After joining the group, she meets an older woman (Vanessa Redgrave) and her grandson (Chris Egan), who teach her about true love and second chances.
In “Ramona and Beezus,” based on the best-selling books by Beverly Cleary, Ramona (Joey King) is a little girl with a nose for mischief.
