The Love Letter | 1999 | R | - 5.1.5

A found love letter addressed to no one sets off a chain of crushes, affairs and misunderstandings in a small seaside village. With Kate Capshaw, Ellen DeGeneres, Tom Selleck, Blythe Danner, Tom Everett Scott, Gloria Stuart, Margaret Ann Brady, Walter Covell, Patrick Donnelly, Lucas Hall, Erik Jensen and Juliane Nicholson. [1:29]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Some sexual innuendo (including a brief, mild reference to virginity and celibacy) and a few kisses, including a passionate kiss shared between a couple in the backseat of a car. A man and woman kiss passionately, then are later seen holding each other in bed (his bare back and the side of her bare hip and back are visible); in a different scene, they kiss passionately and roll around on the floor (he unbuttons her shirt and we see her bare shoulder and a small part of her bare breast from the side as he fondles it). We see a boy looking at a book of nude photographs (a picture of a bare breast is seen). A man wearing boxers and a woman wearing a tank top and short shorts dance together. A woman admits to another that she's a lesbian. We see a very blurry shot of a woman's bare backside as she gets out of bed and walks away. We see a shirtless man and a man in his swimming trunks; the back of a woman's bra is visible through her unzipped dress and a bit of her bra is seen when she's wearing a low-buttoned shirt.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
