Don't let the title of this film throw you off. "The laughs far outnumber the hard and sad punches." Me and Earl and the Dying Girl won both the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
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.
"Me and Earl and the Dying Girl has those handkerchief moments, but the laughs far outnumber the hard and sad punches. This is a movie that’s grounded in reality, has just enough whimsy and soars to the stars. It’s one of the best films of 2015"

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl has those handkerchief moments, but the laughs far outnumber the hard and sad punches. This is a movie that’s grounded in reality, has just enough whimsy and soars to the stars. It’s one of the best films of 2015.
Hitfix, Gregory Ellwood
It's a fresh, beautiful and heartbreaking achievement that continues to surprise until the very last scene. It's dangerous to call something an instant classic, but sometimes it's simply the truth.
The Hollywood Reporte, John DeFore
A smart-ass charmer, merciless tearjerker and sincere celebration of teenage creativity.
indieWIRE, Anisha Jhaveri
Poignant without being melodramatic, overflowing with unforced charm, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl holds a unique appeal that's certain to last.
