Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Trailer. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. RJ Cyler.

ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg [Thomas 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 [RJ 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 [Olivia 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.
