Full movie description:
Letters for Jenny (Cartas para Jenny)
Argentina/2007, Spanish (with subtitles), 96 min. Feature

This sensitively directed film depicts a young woman in love who must make life choices after learning of an unexpected pregnancy. Jenny makes decisions that cannot be made alone and it is only when she discovers three letters written by her mother before her death that Jenny is able to decide how to move forward. After reading the first letter from her mother, Jenny decides to travel to Israel from Argentina and begin a new life. The journey to Jerusalem helps Jenny soften her personal pain, and discover new opportunities‚‚‚‚‚including a new love‚‚‚‚‚so that she can put her life in perspective. The story is moving, and the cinematography is stunning, with scenes of Argentina, Spain and Israel.
