Have you seen the movie P.S. I Love You yet? If you haven’t you need to. I am sitting here bawling at this love story and it makes me appreciate all that I have and how I don;t know what I would do without my husband.
The movie starts with Holly (Hillary Swank) and Gerry (Gerard Butler) fighting. She is running up the stairs and he is saying I’m sorry. The next scene goes to Gerry’s wake. A few weeks later on Holly’s 30th Birthday the letters start coming. The film only shows Gerry’s life and Holly’s impressions of his ‘ghost’. We are shown that Gerry had understood his cancer would take him and planned to help Holly get through it past the grave. His letters encourage her to get out, sing Karaoke, even go to Ireland. Those missives literally help her find her dreams and go on with her life.
“PS I love you” is an outstanding movie. The cast, scenery, and especially the music all fit well together to elicit tears–and yes, occasional laughter.
