About the Movie
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a uniquely funny, wonderfully charming tale of true friendship about a high school senior named Greg, his best friend and fellow student filmmaker Earl, and Rachel — a terminally ill classmate whom Greg is forced to spend time with at the request of his meddling mother.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Somewhere along the way Earl eases up on the suburban-Wes Anderson whimsy and starts to find its heart, infusing the story's self-conscious cleverness and trick-shot set pieces with something sweeter, sadder, and even a little bit profound.
Fresh: The filmmaking from Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is hyper-stylized and a bit wonky at times, with a few odd security camera angles thrown into the mix. But it's also energetic and mostly fun to watch, especially the glimpses of their "awful" movies.
Fresh: I found myself relishing the skill of the cast and laughing at the sharply turned dialogue while wincing at the self-consciousness of the storytelling and the self-congratulatory pop-culture references.
Rotten: There's plenty to like here, but the movie focuses on the least interesting person on the screen, a curious choice considering we're talking life and death.
this movie is so underated it kills me 😞

Its an instant classic.
A Coming-of-Age Film for 2015 You need to see.
I got to see this film at Sundance and it is such a great film. The film's three leads (Thomas, RJ, and Olivia) are brilliant and real, it's rare to find young actors like them nowadays, and the director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon does a wonderful job with the film, so check out Me And Earl And The Dying Girl when it comes out! You'll love it like I do, I promise.
