Me Without You back to product details

Better-than-Average Brit Chick Flick

Sandra Goldbacher's ME WITHOUT YOU is a much-better-than-average "relationship movie" about two teenage best friends and their entangled lives as they grow up and approach middle age. It's full of well-observed details of life, love, companionship and competitiveness--some of this pretty nasty stuff, but all of it real and interesting. Michelle Williams and Anna Friel are both excellent in the lead roles (if you didn't already know Williams from "Dick" or TV's "Dawson's Creek," you might think she was indeed a Brit). The supporting cast, from Alan Corduner (of TOPSY-TURVY) to France's Marianne Denicourt (so good in the recent MONIQUE) are all excellent, as well. The movie captures the culture blips in the 25-year span from 1973 to 2001--via colors, music, hairstyles and more--so it's as enjoyable visually as it is intellectually and emotionally. OK, OK--this IS another chick flick, as I have heard from a few people, as though this were a "dis." I sometimes wonder what it might take to get guys to pay attention to how girls/women think, feel and behave. (They only represent more than half of the world's population, so perhaps they're just not important enough yet.) This worthwhile movie might make an interesting place for some intrepid fellows to begin....
