The Love Letter transports the recipe from Hollywood to New England and turns it into the kind of flavorful clambake that defines summer escapist entertainment.

Thanks to a nicely written screenplay and intelligent direction, the soap stays reasonably bubbly and doesn't leave a sticky feeling on your skin.
