  • Dylan Kidd follows up his well-received ROGER DODGER with this adaptation of Helen Schulman's novel. Adapted by Kidd and Schulman, P.S. tells the story of a frustrated thirtysomething who is desperate to make a human connection. Louise Harrington (Laura Linney) is the director of admissions for Columbia University's Master of Fine Arts program. She is also very lonely. Her best friends are her philandering ex-husband, Peter (Gabriel Byrne), and her ultra-horny childhood companion, Missy Goldberg (Marcia Gay Harden). But when Louise stumbles across the application of a hopeful student, her world is thrown upside down. It turns out this applicant, F. Scott Feinstadt (Topher Grace), shares the exact name, face, and talent of her long-deceased first love. Unable to contain herself, Louise throws herself into a passionate affair with F. Scott, which leads to disturbed confusion and forces Louise to decide what to do with the rest of her life.

    Featuring standout performances from the always-reliable Linney and the charismatic Grace, P.S. is another truly modern tale from Kidd, whose directorial vision is reminiscent of bitter provocateurs Neil Labute and James Toback.
