Movie Info

In this romantic fantasy based on the short story by Jack Finney, Scotty Corrigan (Campbell Scott) is a young man who is engaged to be married, but is having second thoughts about his upcoming wedding. Scotty buys an antique desk and -- hidden in a secret compartment -- he finds a letter from a woman named Elizabeth Whitcomb (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who lived during the 19th century. Fascinated by the letter, Scotty writes her a reply, using antique writing materials, and is shocked when he receives a reply -- somehow he's been able to communicate with her through time, and they begin a correspondence that spans a century and a half. It turns out that Elizabeth is also pledged to marry, but she does not love her fiancée, and a romance begins to blossom through the mail and across time. The Love Letter was produced for the television anthology series The Hallmark Hall of Fame.

    A forgotten film that was one of the favorites on the hallmark channel. A simple film about love and beauty that completes the film with the compassion.
