Sundance Scoop – “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl cleaned house at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival by winning both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award. 

““Me and Earl” is the story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a withdrawn, awkward teenager just trying to coast through his senior year of high school, whose only real pleasure is making parodies of classic films with his friend Earl (RJ Cyler). Then Greg is forced to befriend Rachel (Olivia Cooke), a classmate who’s dying of leukemia – and, almost against their will, they find they need each other.”
