It is always disappointing to me when I want to fall desperately in love with a film and can't.

A journey spanning nearly three decades of bittersweet camaraderie and history, in which we feel that we truly know what makes Holly and Marina tick, and our hearts go out to them as both continue to negotiate their imperfect, love-hate relationship.

Michelle Williams really proves herself here. She's terrific in what could become her breakout role from television's Dawson's Creek.

A well-made and often lovely depiction of the mysteries of friendship.

Love. Lust. Recrimination. Jealousy. Resolution. This British female friendship melodrama has them all.

Taken seriously, it's not much to think about, but taken as a dirtier version of other girlie films ... it's at least entertaining and sexy fun.

You can't ignore the film's pungency as a cultural document and as a heartfelt testimony to the power struggles of best mates.

Mostly, [Goldbacher] just lets her complicated characters be unruly, confusing and, through it all, human.

Me Without You has a bracing truth that's refreshing after the phoniness of female-bonding pictures like Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

There is no substitute for on-screen chemistry, and when Friel pulls the strings that make Williams sink into melancholia, the reaction in Williams is as visceral as a gut punch.

...the story, like Ravel's Bolero, builds to a crescendo that encompasses many more paths than we started with.

"Me Without You" is a probing examination of a female friendship set against a few dynamic decades.

The movie, so briskly alert in details, is generic in its guiding ideas.
