How sweet and tender! And also quite meta that the film that brought him success and gave him a chance to meet her is all about letters! Magic ✨

At 14 he wrote more beautifully than I could ever aspire to! And that their paths later crossed...magical!

Thank you for sharing this lovely story. Sometimes we need to wait to get the answers we hope for. I’m so glad they finally met. This was so touching.

He has always been amazingly open - great to read this. I'd like to think that he responds to any messages he gets from 14year olds now!
