A world of emotion in words alone.

Correspondence is the key to this ultimately romantic friendship destined to last for almost half a century. From childhood, the friends communicate with each other through angst-ridden boarding school experiences, European adventures, failed marriages, and the ups and downs of career. Over the course of their lives, Andy and Melissa’s relationship goes through many changes, as the sometimes-sweethearts/sometimes-friends go through periods of estrangement, but ultimately they remain each other’s most trusted confidante, and are “true lovers” on paper, if not on the earth.

Love Letters explores how the written word can influence us to reimagine our reality and relationships.
