Based on the best-selling novel by Cecelia Ahern, P.S. I Love You stars two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank as Holly Kennedy, beautiful, smart, and married to the love of her lifea passionate, funny and impetuous Irishman named Gerry (Gerard Butler). So when Gerrys life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly. The only one who can help her is the person who is no longer there. Nobody knows Holly better than Gerry. So its a good thing he planned ahead.
Before he died, Gerry wrote Holly a series of letters that will guide her, not only through her grief but in rediscovering herself. The first message arrives on Hollys 30th birthday in the form of a cake and, to her utter shock, a tape recording from Gerry, who proceeds to order her to get out and celebrate herself. In the weeks and months that follow, more letters from Gerry are delivered in surprising ways, each sending her on a new adventure and each signing off in the same way: P.S. I Love You.
Hollys mother (Kathy Bates) and best friends, Sharon (Gina Gershon) and Denise (Lisa Kudrow), begin to worry that Gerrys letters are keeping Holly tied to the past, but, in fact, each letter is pushing her further into a new future.
With Gerrys words as her guide, Holly embarks on a touching, exciting and often hilarious journey of rediscovery in a story about marriage, friendship and how a love so strong can turn the finality of death into a new beginning for life.
P.S. I Love You is produced by Wendy Finerman, Broderick Johnson, Andrew A. Kosove, and Molly Smith; and written and directed by Richard LaGravenese (Freedom Writers, The Bridges of Madison County).
