User Reviews

One of the best personal movies I've ever seen.
13 April 2014 | by ItsJayYorkSee all my reviews

I'm not one of those guys who use to write reviews or something, but this movie put another perspective on me. It's like when you can't find way to home an then appear someone who will never rest until not helping you. In its simpleness, The Letter Writer will connect you with that part most people think they lost and that's great because I was one of them and now... I know what I want to be, I know what roads I want to walk and I know... I'm not alone. This movie can save lives, even for people who think there's nothing good in the world. In my opinion, people don't understand things for themselves, so it's necessary to make things easier for them, like this movie does. The Letter Writer is an ESPIRITUAL movie (not religious - people use to confuse both terms), where all broken parts of your soul and heart can be fixed. This movie got the key of life. All depends on you.
