PS : I love you

October 8, 2014

Ps : I love you is a romantic movie directed by Richard LaGravenese, adapted from the successfully written book, by Cecelia Ahern. The movie is about how to deal with the grief of losing someone important.

ps I love you

 Holly, a beautiful woman, and Gerry, a passionate and funny Irishman, are a happy married couple.

They have to face every day trouble such as living together in Manhattan, having children or not, and how to spend money, but they are ready to face dificulties because they love each other.

But when Gerry dies of a brain tumor, Holly is not so sure of what her future holds in store for her. She becomes depressed, not wanting to see her family and friends anymore, staying in her apartment, listening to her husband’s voicemail again and again, crying herself to sleep every night.

On her 30th birthday, she receives  a cake and an audio recording of her husband’s voice, telling her she has to move on, and that he is going to help her by the means of letters that he wrote when he was still alive, knowing that his dear wife would not be able to overcome his death without his own help.

She starts a kind of grief-trip to Ireland, organised by her dead husband, that helps her meet new people, see her friends again, and finally be happy again despite her loss.

” 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. “

 Despite being a comedy, the director succeeded in making  the viewers cry as hard as he makes them laugh. I was really moved by it and I strongly recommend it. Now that I’ve seen the movie, I wish to read the book by Cecilia Ahern to see if we get as emotional on reading it.
