Movie Info

Two years ago, David Lewis' (Peter Gallagher) wife, Gillian (Michelle Pfeiffer), fell from their sailboat and died, and since then he's been uninterested in other relationships. Rachel (Claire Danes), their daughter, has been suffering during this period, as David ignores her and goes walking on the nearby beach, where he communicates with Gillian's ghost. Gillian's sister, Esther (Kathy Baker), brings a friend to the house in hopes of sparking his interest, but that only leads to complications.

Audience Reviews for To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday

  • Jan 21, 2012
    Some movies are harmless and well-meaning enough to be enjoyable even if they fail to be "good" movies. To Gillian is not a "good" movie by the conventional standards and did not fair well with either mainstream audiences or critics. But, I like this movie. I like the relationships and some of the issues they attempt to address. There are a few moments of truth in this film. Plus, it takes place on Nantucket Island, which makes this movie very easy to watch. The beach, the moonlight, the gentle drama. This is a harmless movie that is worthwhile, even if it's not groundbreaking.

    this movie is about a guy whose wife died and although she died two years ago, Gillian Lewis (Michelle Pfeiffer) is still very much alive for her grieving husband, David (Peter Gallagher who lives with his 16year old daughter on Nantucket island and spends time with his imaginary wife every night on the beach. His life has basically stopped and his concerned sister in law (with husband and blind date for Peter) show up for the Labor Day Weekend. this movie is touching and moving as it deals with the emotions of letting go of the past and those left behind.

    When the best thing you can say about a film is that it has beautiful location filming you know the movie's in trouble. Gooey and too precious by half.
