As others have noted, Hillary Swank can be great in certain vehicles, but totally miss in others. This movie falls toward the later for me: she's not terrible, but I never empathized with her character (she comes across as spoiled and entitled here) and I could envision other actresses who would be more engaging in the role.
At 2 hours, I thought the movie could have been more concise without sacrificing the story line... but that's what happens when the director is also the screenwriter. All-in-all, I thought the movie was well crafted and IMDb's rating of 7.1/10 is spot on.
I would not rent it again. The Karaoke Scene was the only part I really liked, tho' some of the scenes in Ireland were pretty good too.
But, ..., tho' I'm not one who dwells on anything that cannot be changed(like death), I can see how this can be cathartic and for anyone who is old enuf to have lost many/most/all of those one has loved, it M/B a good watch, with a box of tissues.

The story is simple enough - very happy married couple, all OK, then husband dies, wife devastated. But there is a twist, husband has prepared for his death and sends (you'll see when you watch the film) his wife (extremely well acted by Hillary Swank) letters for her to go places and see things - OK enough of the story, I do not wish to spoil it any more.
Suffice to say, this is a lovely film that you will want to watch again and again.
I understand that producers/directors like to put their own stamp on a project, but they can still do that whilst remaining true to the story line.
In the novel, Holly is Irish & Gerry is English. They have reversed the roles in the film.
In the novel, Holly's dad features frequently, and we learn that he is responsible for the work/maintenance of her garden. In the film, her dad is none existent, having walked out in Holly & her mother when she was a child, using this as the backdrop of her 'commitment issues with regards to children.
The song, Galway Girl, a great song & one of my favourites, however it left me a little perplexed: 'Her hair is black and her eyes are blue.'
If I was Holly, I would be questioning just who the woman is, Gerry is singing about...considering that Holly (played by Hillary Swank) has brown hair & brown eyes.
Gerrard & Hillary play the role of Gerry & Holly well & have good chemistry, though couldn't help but feeling short changed by the film. I guess this is the downside to having read the novel first, as so often is the case.
Overall, a nice film to watch on a rainy afternoon while completing chores.
