Best of Fest - Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

About the Film

High school senior Greg (Thomas Mann) masks his insecurities and awkwardness by cultivating superficial friendships with every clique in school, but shies away from any real emotional ties—he even refers to his closest friend, Earl (R.J. Cyler), as his “co-worker.” The pair spend lunch breaks watching classic and foreign films that inspire them to make delightfully bad spoof remakes like Senior Citizen Kane and A Sockwork Orange.
But Greg’s detachment is threatened when his mother (Connie Britton) insists he visit Rachel (Olivia Cooke), a classmate he barely knows who has been diagnosed with leukemia. Despite the acknowledged forced nature of their interactions, they find themselves growing closer. With Rachel’s illness a constant presence that threatens to derail their newfound rapport, Greg is motivated to make a film that will truly impress her. Jesse Andrews’ script is a celebration of creativity that balances clever humor with poignant drama, as expertly realized by director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and his talented cast in this Sundance Film Festival U.S. Dramatic Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize winner.
