100 Word Review – Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015)

This is one of those films that I’ll be talking about for months.

Greg (Thomas Mann) is forced by his mother (Connie Britton) and father (Nick Offerman) to hang out with his classmate Rachel (Olivia Cooke) after they find out she has leukaemia.

RJ Clyer is wonderful as Greg’s fellow filmmaker, the dead-pan Earl of the title.

Funny and moving in a way which is reminiscent of Little Miss Sunshine.

Adapted from the novel by its author Jesse Andrews, it is a wonderful exploration of friendship and loss of innocence splattered with enough filmic references for the most devout cinephile.
