    True Love Never Dies

    Even a grown man can't help but feel a knot in his throat while watching this film. It's a love that truly never dies.

    Perfect for dealing with any kind of loss...

    My sister and I watched this right after we both broke up with our respective boyfriends. I know the moving is about the husband dying, but the message of hope and moving on that echos through the film really helps with any kind of loss situation. I was not to sure how I would like Hillary Swank in this role at first, but she grew on me as the film progressed. Its also nice to see Lisa Kudrow, her character is minor, but she does it well. <BR/>Also, anything with Gerard Butler and Harry Connick Jr will give you pretty eye candy to help get over that loss. <BR/><BR/>P.S. Gerry's funeral? That's how I want mine to go.

    Nice movie.

    I enjoyed this movie, even though I thought Hillary Swank was a miscast. She is a good actress, but I don't think she was quite right in this role. Some hand me a tissue moments, with a good ending.

    A Nice Little Surprise Film

    Marketing P.S. I LOVE YOU was a hit/miss situation. The general trailer and the billboards seem to set the audience up for a sappy tearjerker. But happily what happens in this film is not the expected 'widowed person communicating with the dead love out of failure to get on with life' tale, but instead a look into the importance of friendship, family, and adjusting to the incomparable loss. Credit the original novel by Cecelia Ahern as adapted for the screen by Steven Rogers writer/director Richard LaGravenese for making what so easily have been a sappy, maudlin, whining tale into a touching one of human emotions with a sense of reality mixed with a mildly implausible situation, and a series of character studies that emphasize the importance of support in the time of grief. Holly (Hilary Swank) and Gerry (Gerard Butler) Kennedy are a married couple with goals and frustrations and a huge dollop of passionate love, surrounded by friends and family. The tragedy happens just as the movie starts: Gerry has died of a brain tumor leaving the copeless Holly alone with her memories and self-inflicted regrets. But Gerry, knowing he was a terminal patient, devised his own plan to help Holly through that first year of grief: he left letters in various forms and places, advising Holly how to learn about his family and how to get on with life. Holly's mother (Kathy Bates) owns a bar and has supported her little family since Holly's father deserted his family years ago. In the bar is another injured soul named Daniel (Harry Connick Jr.) who fancies Holly but realizes she is far from ready to think about dating. Holly's friends Denise (Lisa Kudrow) and Sharon (Gina Gershon) accompany Holly to Gerry's pre-planned trip to his home in Ireland to meet the in-laws Holly never knew. While in Ireland Holly reminisces on the magic of first meeting Gerry, meets Gerry's parents as well as Gerry's best friend William (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and through it all manages to appreciate the gift of PS I Love You letters and reminders Gerry has left for her. And she ultimately finds closure to her loss. The cast is strong and makes these at times strained characters into lovable people: Hilary Swank has made a successful entrance into the feminine lead role and is balanced to perfection by Butler, Morgan, Connick, Bates, Kudrow and Gershon. They make the implausible plausible and deliver a love story that goes beyond the level of superficial to join the ranks of warm and tender memorable slices of life. It is surprisingly good!
