Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
With Thomas Mann, RJ Cyler, Olivia Cooke
USA, 2015, 105 minutes, rated PG-13
Greg, a gangly, sarcastic teenager, and his best friend Earl share a fondness for movies. They remake classic films using stop motion animation and wacky costumes. At the urging of Greg's mom, the guys befriend Rachel, a classmate with cancer. In unsentimental fashion, the three embark on a journey that involves growing up, facing death, and other rites of passage.
Winner, Grand Jury Prize, 2015 Sundance Film Festival
"This brilliantly funny, casually profound and deeply affecting coming-of-age chronicle, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon from a screenplay by Jesse Andrews, even manages to be life-enlightening it's a fresh take on contemporary adolescence as a journey from ironic detachment to openhearted feeling. . . ." Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
