Recently, I borrowed PS I Love You from the library based solely on Hilary Swank's presence in the film. I'd not heard anything about it, nor do I remember seeing any previews for it when it was in the theater. (I haven't seen Million Dollar Baby, but I loved Hilary in Boys Don't Cry.)
As fellow Michigander Ree The Hotfessional says:
OH MAH HOLY HELL Y'ALL.
I started crying at the beginning of PSILY and didn't stop until it was over. Thank God S wasn't there for most of it. (He arrived towards the end of the film and teased me mercilessly about bawling like a baby.)
I just adored this film.
Every once in a while, when I'm in the mood for a total tearjerker, I pull out The Color Purple.
Now I've got a second choice. (AND a wee crush on Gerard Butler.)
