Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Me and Earl and the Dying Girl stars Thomas Mann as Greg, a high-school senior who spends most of his time filming low-budget remakes of classic movies with his friend Earl (RJ Cyler). Greg purposefully leads an antisocial life; his mother, concerned with his behavior, pushes him to befriend a classmate named Rachel (Olivia Cooke) who is battling leukemia. The two surprisingly develop a rich friendship, and she helps Greg and Earl with their creative endeavors. But when Rachel's condition grows more serious, Greg must deal with the messiness of real life. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl screened at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.~Perry Seibert

It's a very underrated film that is funny. Humor is probably along the lines of Juno in a way. Great supporting cast and just a good movie all around. Glad I could find it for cheap here. Good addition to my collection.
this movie flipped me out, but in a good way. this movie was heart warming and charming. the special features in this movie is amazing, especially watch the interview with the director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and his idol Martin Scorsese, is amazing. If you are a film student you would really appreciate this movie.
A brilliant film that deserves to be better known. One of the best films of the year that most definitely exceeds expectations and is much better than 99% of the mega budget movies that dominate the movie theaters today.. Excellent high definition picture quality and sound makes this very very highly recommended
