You Can't Do Without Me has been rated as the top grossing movie of all time and one of the top five movies of all time on IMDb. The film is in theaters everywhere. Anyone who hasn't seen it is probably asking why is it so popular. We don't have to explain it, we can just say it's a great story, a love story of epic proportions and, well, it's about a girl named Anita and her father who's been involved in a long-term relationship with her mother's sister.
Let's start from the beginning. This movie begins with the transfer of Anita's life to her new home. Her father dies leaving her alone to a new family. After finding out that she has a sister she and her new sister are reunited at her mother's house. Things go well for the two girls and they get along.
The movie starts when they find out that their father died before they could meet. They learn about each other and it seems like things are going to be OK. However, the next day they get a phone call telling them their father has died.
Now, her father was involved in a fight with her mother's friend and later with the man who had raped her mother when she was a child. She and her father hadn't been the best of friends. And now that she's grown up she and her father aren't friends anymore.
Because of this she's decided to go on with her life and go on with her schooling. She gets rejected by her university and since she couldn't attend classes in person, she enrolled in one online. There she met her best friend.
The film has a very honest story and that's what makes it so well known. It shows the absurdity of being forced to be one of those girls you know you're never going to be. The jokes are priceless and the concept is about life changing.
It's about love and we can all relate to it. For the love of the father, we can relate to that too.
The movie isn't just about a girl, it's about being true to yourself. It's about being real and respecting the people around you. It's about your own existence and the joy that can come from that.
