He knows she's dead
Joshua B. Smith | Chicago, IL | 09/27/2004

"Here's the thing about this movie: He knows she's dead. A lot of the other reviewers here seem to forget that he acknowledges she's dead but that doesn't matter. She is dead but not gone. For some people, that statement sounds like some kind of sacchrine line to calm children. Sometimes it's the truth, though, and that's what this movie is about.
The movie does take itself seriously, but the subject IS serious. This is a solid movie, it's not a great film. Taking yourself seriously is not the same as claiming greatness. David Kelly is a capable director and the cast has chemistry and participate in the telling of a good story. That's it. It's a good story, and a fine film."
I Relate Deeply To This Movie

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Having lost my wife under similiar circumstances, I experienced exactly What Peter Gallagher's acting expressed in this Film. His moving potrail of deep grief was so much like what I was experiencing it was chilling. The film did make me realize, that its time to move on."
David R. Kelly guts a touchingly beautiful play
John Munn, Jr. | Tacoma, WA USA | 06/17/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)
"Once upon a time, Michael Brady wrote a wonderfully, touching play called TO GILLIAN ON HER 37th BIRTHDAY. It was a story about a man refusing to come to grips with losing his wife in a terrible accident and keeping her alive through conversations with her on the beach. By living in his false world, he is losing sight of the real world and his daughter who is drifting away from him.It was a simply written, yet complex, story about relationships between people who are still grieving for loved ones and living in the present is worth it for the incredible opportunities that can be found.David R. Kelly (Ally McBeal, The Practice) disembowels all of the life from a beautiful piece of storytelling and turns it into a very poorly written, poorly acted, Hallmark Hall of Fame special that gives away its dramatic mysteries within the first 15 minutes of the film.Too bad...My advice: Get the script from Amazon.com...it's under TO GILLIAN ON HER 37th BIRTHDAY and author MICHAEL BRADY."
