Based on the novel by Bernice Rubens, I Sent a Letter to My Love stars Simone Signoret as a woman who has reached middle age without truly learning how to live. Responsible for the constant care of her paraplegic brother Jean Rochefort, Signoret seeks a brief respite from her confinement by inaugurating a pen-pal relationship with a man she has never met. Gradually, Signoret falls in love with her mystery correspondent, a love that is apparently reciprocated. No, we will not divulge the ending. Also featured in I Sent a Letter to My Love is cult favorite Delphine Seyrig.
