Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Comedy, Drama

High schooler Greg, who spends most of his time making parodies of classic movies with his co-worker Earl, finds his outlook forever altered after befriending a classmate who has just been diagnosed with cancer.

The critical consensus

Sweet but cool, funny and touching, Me And Earl… does it all. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll run to the Criterion Collection.

Gomez-Rejon’s sardonic yet sensitive story of geek friendship is the best YA illness novel adap yet. And yes, you can stick that on the poster.

****(*)Kevin Harley, Total Film, 31/08/2015

Fresh-faced and twee Sundance hit, from director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.

***(*)(*)Karen Krizanovich, The List, 31/08/2015

A gem from Gomez-Rejon. Intrigued to see what he does next.

Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 02/09/2015

An affectless teenager’s life is turned around when he encounters his leukaemia-stricken neighbour.

**(*)(*)(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 03/09/2015

Like its protagonist, Me, Earl and the Dying Girl – which somehow won two major awards at Sundance earlier this year – thinks it’s much deeper than it is.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 05/09/2015

What might have been the mawkish tale of a geek getting to know a leukaemia sufferer is lifted by its offbeat tone.
