We have a new trailer for you to watch for one of the best movies you'll see this year. It's called Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, and it was one of my favorite films at Sundance this year. This is a fantastic trailer, but it doesn't do the movie justice. It barely hints at how incredible this film actually is. If you haven't already, check out my review here.
The movie was directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, and it stars Thomas Mann, Olivia Cooke, Ronald Cyler II, Jon Bernthal, Connie Britton, Molly Shannon, and Nick Offerman. I also included a couple of clips from the film as well. Here’s the synopsis:
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg (Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life. He even describes his constant companion Earl (Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a ‘co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Cooke) – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer – he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be.
You seriously have to watch this movie when it's released on June 12th. It really is an incredible movie, and I promise you won't be sorry.
