P.S. I Love You : A review

By Abirami Muthukrishnan

Though fans of the Cecilia Ahern’s book ‘P.S. I Love You’ have been complaining about the movie adaptation and the changes it necessitated, it does not change the fact that it is one of the few quality feel-good films in the recent past. Amidst the flurry of action-adventures, dark dramas and dude and chick-flicks, ‘P.S. I Love You’ breathes a whiff of fresh air into the movie-going audience.

Casting magic
Hilary Swank with her two Academy Awards is hardly an actress one would associate with romantic comedies. But, once one actually sees the movie, one concludes that casting magic has happened. Hilary comes to life as the newly widowed heroine of Ahern’s novel, Holly Kennedy, and is the perfect foil for actor Gerard Butler’s Gerry Kennedy who communicates with his wife from beyond the grave through letters and recorded messages that he left for her before his death.
The movie shows Hilary’s character slowly progressing from the grieving widow who stays shut in her apartment for weeks, back to the vital young woman eager for life before she met her charming Irish husband. And how she stumbles and rises up again with the help of her friends and family and even her hopeless one-night stand lends for many a funny and thoughtful moment.
Phoebe as Denise
Casting is the main reason this movie rises above the average. Each actor fits his or her role to the ‘T’, especially Lisa Kudrow as Hilary’s flaky friend, who is back in a Phoebe-like character, much to the audience’s delight. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Harry Connick Jr. charm as the other Irishmen charmers who make a mark on Hilary’s catharsis.
P.S. - This movie is good time-pass.
