    Synopsis


    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
    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, Rovi

      Quirky drama / comedy

      Think "The Fault in Our Stars" but a lot stranger. This is the story of a high school boy doing his best to fly under the radar. He comes from an eclectic family, has a best friend he won't refer to as his friend and has the ultimate goal of getting through high school without ever choosing a clique to belong to. He is forced to spend time with a girl from school who has been diagnosed with leukemia. A tenuous first meeting leads to a life changing friendship that will forever alter the path of his life. The humor is strange, but in a good way. The emotion is powerful and the journey is worth taking. Not what I expected as I was presently surprised by the fresh, quirky storytelling.

      Great Quirky Movie, Great Blu-Ray

      First off I'll say the movie is great and a lot of fun, especially if you're a fan of movies themselves, as the love of cinema plays a large role in the film. But you can find in-depth reviews of the movie elsewhere. I'd just like to say that the Blu-ray itself is a great buy, terrific image quality, solid audio, and some really cool extras (including a surprisingly in-depth 40 minute making-of feature and the full 5-minute cut of the short film Greg makes for Rachel in the movie). If you enjoyed the movie, I would highly recommend picking up this disc, especially considering the movie's great rewatch potential.

      This movie has so much good about it like the cast, script, and narration. However this movie has a real depressing ending and the movie addresses this at the start of the film. It is a great find funny and the main characters obsession with old criterion cinema made me smile and laugh you can tell the director is a fan. Earl's character made me laugh almost though most of the film. This movie felt very similar to the fault in our stars without as much comedy or romance. I enjoyed this film more but it felt like the same type of film. I liked this movie a lot but was a little disappointed with how the film ended.

      Depressingly Good

      In a nutshell, I would say this movie is not for everyone, because of the depressing topic. It's your typical teen drama involving a friendship between a boy and a girl with one of them having a terminal illness. It is surprisingly well-written, with smart humor, and excellent performances by the 3 main actors. I purchased it on sale at $14.99, my typical price point for non-blockbuster films. If you can get it cheaper (during, say, Black Friday), even better. The product packaging is very well done. The blu-ray case I purchased came with a very nice slipcover with a matte finish that's velvet-y to the touch.

      For the first third of the film, it's a fish out of water high school comedy/friendship. But then the magic begins as Thomas Mann's and Olivia Cooke's friendship deepens. It's well executed, touching, sad, funny, heart-breaking, and life-affirming; all in one. I've only bought a few movies that came out in 2015, after seeing this one in the theatres - I knew I had to purchase it. The blu-ray has extras such as deleted scenes, but the director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's commentary is a window into the film and editing process (including his commentary on the deleted scenes explaining why he had to let them go).

      If you like Fault in our Stars then you should love this movie, unless your dead inside. The little indie that could is a great young adult movie about love, loss, moving forward and dealing with certain things in life that we simple cannot control. This movie was beautifully written, well acted and frankly just delivers. Yes, it's sad... but it's funny, interesting, surprising, and poignant. Everything life is supposed to be. If you watch this movie you won't be disappointed, that is of course if you're not already dead inside.

      Clearly a Step Above

      In the pantheon of teen movies, there are those that some would classify as "sick teen" movies: a teen is stricken with a life threatening illness, and fabricated and manufactured is derived hence. This is not that type of movie. "Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl" is so clearly better than others within this sub-genre that to lump it in the same category as others who wish they shared the same resonance and heart is not only irresponsible, but truly tragic in and of itself.

      One Of 2015's Best!

      2015 has brought some great movies. With Mad Max, Jurassic World, Furious 7, and Age of Ultron all hitting big it was nice to get a great drama/comedy for when we needed a break from all the chaos. Me & Earl & The Dying Girl delivers some great performances from the three leads and delivers some powerful cinematography. This is not a chick-flick/teen love story so definitely give it a shot.
