Confirming the extraordinary promise of his debut, Dylan Kidd’s P.S. is a film as disarmingly lovely and romantic as ROGER DODGER was ascerbic and cutting.

Louise Harrington, a divorced, thirty-something admission’s office at Columbia University’s School of Fine Arts is intelligent, pretty, successful, and… unfulfilled.  That is, until a graduate school application crosses her desk and she arranges to interview the young painter.

When Scott Feinstadt appears, he bears an uncanny resemblance to Louise’s high school boyfriend and one true love, an artist who died in a car accident twenty years earlier. Within hours of the interview, Louise and Scott have embarked on a passionately uninhibited older woman/younger man affair. But is Scott just a reminder of Louise’s lost love?  And is Scott just trying to wheedle his way into the Ivy League?

Adding to the romantic complications is competition from Louise’s best friend from high school, Missy, who shows up to claim the affections of the boy; Louise’s co-dependent ex-husband Peter; her cynical mother and fresh-out-of-rehab brother.

Torrid and tender, serious and sexy P.S. features a career performance from Laura Linney (MYSTIC RIVER, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME) and a breakthrough leading man turn for Topher Grace (TRAFFIC, THAT 70’S SHOW).

P.S. is based on Helen Schulman’s novel of the same name, shot entirely in New York City, is a romantic fable about getting a second chance at first love.
