Digg Button  
Many adults are still imprinted by the memory of their first love. Rodger Dodger director Dylan Kidd and noted author Helen Schulman both believe this, so the woman's book, P.S., is being adapted for theatrical release by the rising auteur.

The movie tells the story of Louise Harrington, a lonely, misguided admissions director at Columbia University. The woman suffered through a tragedy in her teen life when her high school boyfriend died unexpectedly. Since then, she has lived a half life that includes a failed marriage and a frustrating career. Her disappointments disappear in an instant, however, when an unexpected application crosses her desk.

A veritable ghost from the past enters Harrington's life in the form of an applicant named Scott Feinstadt (the acerbic Topher Grace). This was the name of her lost love, so she gives the dossier a bit more attention that it deserves. To her utter shock, the young man bears a striking resemblance to her first boyfriend.

Given the unique opportunity to re-live the events if her youth, Louise boldly embarks on a voyage of self-discovery with a touch of Harold and Maude thrown in. Our heroine overlooks the fact that the grad student is 15 years her junior as she falls for the possible reincarnation of her deceased first love.

Think of P.S. as How Louise Got Her Groove Back with Topher Grace slotted in for Taye Diggs. (David Mumpower/BOP)
