P.S. I Love You

Title: P.S. I Love You (Official Site)
Cast: Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler, Lisa Kudrow, Kathy Bates
Directed by: Richard LaGravenese
Release Date: December 21, 2007
Genre: Drama/ Romance

(this is a long overdue post..)

我是在飛機上看這部電影的.. 我一邊看, 眼淚不由自主地流下來.. 真的十分感動..
我買了這部電影的 DVD 回來給 LG 看, 他也覺得很感動而流下淚來..

這部電影是改編自愛爾蘭女作家 Cecelia Ahern 的同名小說.. 這次我連小說也買回來.. 因為我真的覺得電影拍得這個故事很細緻, 很想看看原著是不是也一樣!!
(很少看 Hilary Swank 拍的愛情片, 原來她也很有喜劇細胞的..)

故事一開始便是兩夫妻在睡房吵架, 但很快大家已經不想為小事爭執而相擁起來.. 這 intro 交代了 Holly (Hilary Swank) 和 Gerry (Gerard Butler) 的關係, 是不願意有一分鐘和對方分開的.. 鏡頭一轉就已經到 Gerry 的 funeral party..
Holly 在 30歲前已經失去了她最愛的丈夫, Gerry 亦估計到 Holly 無法自己振作起來, 所以留下 12 封情信給 Holly, 希望可以幫助她度過最艱難的日子..
每一封信也會以不同的形式出現, 每次 Gerry 都有不同的安排給 Holly.. 而每封信的最後 Gerry 也會以 "P.S. I Love You" 來完結.. 令 Holly 仍然感受到被愛..
每一段 Holly 和 Gerry 在一起的場面也十分感人.. 但這電影不單止講愛情, 還有友情及親情..

最後一封信是由 Holly 媽媽交給 Holly 的; 而 Holly 就在那時發現, 原來是 Gerry 求她媽媽代他寄出所有信件的.. Holly媽媽一直也不喜歡 Gerry, 但正因為 Gerry 的離世, 令 Holly 和她媽媽的關係進一步改善..

here's the trailer for the movie..

Address: 9425 Leslie Street, Unit 6 & 7, Richmond Hill (16th & Leslie)
Phone: (905) 237-4726

we noticed that their sign looks like the 紅螞蟻 in HK (which is famous of its 焗飯).. we decided to give it a try.. & it was not bad!

冰鎮奶茶 Icy Milk Tea $2.5 & 高纖胚芽好立克 Wheat Germ Horlick $2.99
..there was no ice in the Icy Milk Tea.. they put the drink in the bowl with ice to make the Milk Tea icy.. which is nice (as the Milk Tea won't be diluted).. & LG likes the Horlick too..

they have a variety of choices.. 湯麵 Soup Noodle, 焗 Casserole Dishes, 炒 Stir Fried, 燴 Stew, etc.

LG & i both picked 焗飯.. we could have Steamed Rice, Fried Rice, or Spaghetti..
泰式紅咖哩豬頸肉 Baked Pork Loin in Thai Red Curry $7.99

金牌港式焗豬扒 Baked Pork Chop in Tomato Sauce $7.99

the food was above average.. & we'll definitely try again as they gave out cash coupons after we paid.. it's worth half of our bill.. i guess they r still brand new & that's y they r doing this kind of discount program.. to make customers come back again.. :P

& the place became quite busy at lunch time..
