Based on a Jojo Moyes’ book of the same name, is set to star Felicity Jones as journalist Ellie Haworth, who uncovers old love letters while in present-day London. From those letters, she learns, were sent between Jennifer Stirling played by Divergent actress Shailene Woodley and Anthony O’Hare as Callum Turner in the 1960s while Jennifer was in an abusive marriage to Laurence Stirling portrayed by none other than Taylor Swift’s beau Joe Alwyn.
Felicity Jones, Shailene Woodley, Callum Turner, Joe Alwyn and Nabhaan Rizwan get swept up in summer romance in THE LAST LETTER FROM YOUR LOVER, an extraordinary generation-spanning love story based on the novel by Jojo Moyes.

The long-awaited trailer for the streaming giant’s upcoming twisted romance is finally here and did not disappoint, as promised, we’re getting a steamy affair fit for a Taylor Swift song!
However, the most interesting and probably surprising revelation from the trailer was that Joe Alwyn is the villain in the story. That makes the use of a Haim song in the trailer even more ironic given the Taylor Swift connection. Alwyn’s role aside, this looks like the kind of story that will leave you absolutely devastated and in tears by the time the film ends; so do be warned tissues will be used throughout the film.
Catch the trailer for The Last Letter From Your Lover, slated to be out on Netflix on July 23.
