With or Without You is a romantic comedy-drama film from 2003 directed by G. Stubbs. The movie follows the relationship of Michael (Mushond Lee) and Lisa (Cynda Williams), who have been together for five years but are at a crossroads in their relationship. Michael, a struggling musician, is content with his life and relationship with Lisa. However, Lisa's desire to get married and have children conflicts with Michael's carefree attitude towards life. The movie starts with Lisa expressing her desire to have a child, which Michael is reluctant to entertain.

While Lisa tries to hold on to her relationship with Michael, she also starts to wonder whether she should follow her own dreams and desires or stay with Michael, who doesn't seem to have the same plans for their future together.

As the story progresses, we see the couple navigating through their differences and trying to find a common ground. Michael finally decides to settle down and marry Lisa, but their relationship is tested when Michael is offered a record deal that could take him away from Lisa for a long time.

The film also deals with the theme of pursuing your dreams and taking risks for your passion. Michael's passion for music enables him to make a big decision for his career that could also affect his relationship with Lisa. On the other hand, Lisa has to decide whether she should pursue her dream of having a family or leave Michael to follow her passion.

The movie's characters are relatable, and their storylines are engaging. Michael is a charming and likable character, who we root for throughout the movie. Lisa, who starts off as a pushover, learns to be more assertive, and stand up for what she wants. Their friends, played by Guy Torry and Trisha Mann-Grant, provide comic relief and also add another layer to the story.

The movie's music also stands out, especially the original songs performed by Michael. The songs reflect the character's emotions, and add to the overall mood of the movie.

Stylistically, the movie is well shot, with a mix of close-ups and wide shots that bring out the emotions of the characters. The pacing is also good, as the story moves along smoothly without any dull moments.

Overall, With or Without You is a heartwarming and emotional movie that explores the complexities of relationships and the importance of pursuing your passions. The characters are relatable, the music is excellent, and the story is engaging. It's a must-watch for fans of rom-coms and anyone who has ever struggled to find a balance between their dreams and love life.
