The universally beloved-at-Sundance 2015 film, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, is coming people.
So prepare accordingly.
The indie – an adaptation of the 2013 novel by Jesse Andrews – was directed by TV helmer Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Red Band Society, Glee), in his debut for the silver screen, and stars Thomas Mann as a low-key high schooler whose mom (Connie Britton) makes him hang out with a girl (Olivia Cooke, of A&E’s Bates Motel) who’s just gotten diagnosed with cancer. Together with his BFF/quote-unquote co-worker, he slowly gets to discovering how worthwhile it can be to opening yourself up to an experience you wanted nothing to do with for some reason....
Ain’t that the truth.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl will be out in theaters on June 12. Check out the trailer now.
