Hilary Swank finally lets loose in this adaptation of the Cecelia Ahern novel in which a young widow embarks on a healing journey at the behest of her late husband, who left her a string of instructive letters. The film veers into cliché and will tear-jerk the hell out of you, but it’s helped immeasurably by funny dialogue and good performances (Harry Connick Jr.’s horsey bartender is the opposite of the southern charmer you’d expect).
