Directed by Dylan Kidd, P.S. follows Louise Harrington (Laura Linney), a divorcee who works in Columbia University's School of Fine Arts and at first glance seems utterly satisfied with her life. The thirties-odd woman has found success in the workplace, is respected among her peers, and is fairly confident in her own abilities -- yet, she can't help but feel something is missing. When she arranges to interview a prospective student at least 15 years younger than she is, she's shocked to find out he is the spitting image of her high-school sweetheart, an artist who had died in a… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Linney directs her scenes from within them, holding our attention and keeping the focus on her confusion, her pain and her hope."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Can't seem to make up its mind whether it's a romantic comedy, a drama or a psychological thriller and settles for being an odd -- and unbelievable -- hybrid of all three."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"The actors elevate the material a bit, but they can't escape the fact that the movie only has vague goals set for itself."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"p.s. is a showcase for Linney, who juggles Louise's many self-contradictions ... in a bright and humor-filled performance."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"No matter how good Laura Linney is, she can't overcome this movie that goes nowhere and has nothing really interesting to say."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"Both genders are programmed by eons of Darwinian genetic strategy, and so we believe them, and because Linney and Grace are sexy and play well together, the age gap is not a barrier so much as additional seasoning."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The only reason to this ultra-modest, underwhelming indie is Laura Linney's performance as a mature woman falling for a man half her age."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"It's a romantic comedy-drama that's every bit as unpredictable, offbeat and assured as Kidd's first film, although some third-act problems keep it from real greatness."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"When the film dispenses with its Harlequinish plot foolishness and flies on the director's considerable instinct, it's a gas."
‑ Andrew Wright, The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
"Lost me about halfway through and never got me back."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"Despite an excellent supporting cast something in p.s. goes mushy and implausible."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"A hidden gem, worth hunting for..."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"Strains credibility."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"An interesting misstep...the lead performances are superb, but even they can't make up for the hard-to-swallow story."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"...menopausal drama full of hot flashes and preposterous plot turns. P.S., Linney overacts too."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
