into something more.
Holly's stable home life, with dad
reading the paper while classical
music plays, couldn't be more differ-
ent from life at Marina's house.
Marina's dad is a. philanderer, while
her mom is a hard-partying gal who
acts and dresses more like a guy-crazy
big sister than a mother.
Me Without You delineates the
rivalries, jealousies (petty and other-
wise) and unconditional support that
characterize the girls' relationship.
Holly wistfully wishes she were more
attractive even as she sees the kind of
guy trouble that the precocious
Marina attracts.
For her part, Marina envies Holly's
stolid, predictable family, especially
the presence of a trustworthy father
figure.

their college years, Holly, who's
always been a voracious reader, finds
herself in her element. Curious,
intellectual and living on her own at
last, she thrives.
Until, that is, she makes the mistake
of falling for one of her professors (Kyle
MacLachlan) — albeit a handsome
Jewish one. But Marina, whose. self-
esteem and power are (like her moth-
er's) tied up with nabbing any guy she
chooses, makes a play for the same guy.
Needless to say, once Holly finds out
she breaks off her friendship with
Marina. But there are plenty more ups
and downs in store for the two women.
A vibrant film, replete with color-
ful vintage clothes and a stellar
soundtrack, Me Without You is a
highly enjoyable pop-culture trip —
even when . soap opera melodramatics
threaten to sink the movie in bathos.
