Tagline: Sometimes there's only one thing left to say.
A young widow, Holly Kennedy (Hilary Swank) discovers that her late husband, the passionate, funny and impetuous Irishman named Gerry (Gerard Butler) has left her 10 messages when she turned 30 in the form of a cake intended to help ease her pain and start a new life when he died. All letters were delivered in surprising ways, each sending her on a new adventure and each signing off in the same way; P.S. I Love You.
It's heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. How something so great can end and how to start another equally magical journey is altogether shown in this movie. I enjoyed this romantic comedy slash drama film. Oh and its from a novel by Cecilia Ahern. Mhmm I haven't tried reading her books yet. I just might try one of her novels one day. :)
This is the most heartbreaking.... touching letter I've ever heard:
Gerry Kennedy: Dear Holly, I don't have much time. I don't mean literally, I mean you're out buying ice cream and you'll be home soon. But I have a feeling this is the last letter, because there is only one thing left to tell you. It isn't to go down memory lane or make you buy a lamp, you can take care of yourself without any help from me. It's to tell you how much you move me, how you changed me. You made me a man, by loving me Holly. And for that, I am eternally grateful... literally. If you can promise me anything, promise me that whenever you're sad, or unsure, or you lose complete faith, that you'll try to see yourself through my eyes. Thank you for the honor of being my wife. I'm a man with no regrets. How lucky am I. You made my life, Holly. But I'm just one chapter in yours. There'll be more. I promise. So here it comes, the big one. Don't be afraid to fall in love again. Watch out for that signal, when life as you know it ends. P.S. I will always love you
It's amazing how a guy can love a woman like Gerry does. Oooffff... why do I always fall in love with book characters and movie characters??? Because they give me the luxury to feel things while watching or reading.... in a magical... way...........
Patricia: So now, all alone or not, you gotta walk ahead. Thing to remember is if we're all alone, then we're all together in that too.
Holly Kennedy: Dear Gerry, you said you wanted me to fall in love again, and maybe one day I will. But there are all kinds of love out there. This is my one and only life, And its a great and terrible and short and endless thing, and none of us come out of it alive. I don't have a plan... except, it's time my mom laughed again. She has never seen the world... she has never seen Ireland. So, I'm taking her back where we started... Maybe now she'll understand. I don't know how you did it, but you brought me back from the dead. I'll write to you again soon. P.S... Guess what?
