Me And Earl And The Dying Girl di Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Glee, American Horror Story) è stato il trionfatore del Sundance Film Festival, lo scorso febbraio.
Ha vinto il Grand Prix della giuria ed il premio del pubblico.
Negli Stati Uniti uscirà il 12 giugno per la Fox Searchlight. E’ una commedia piena di cinema.
Nel cast ci sono Thomas Mann, Olivia Cooke, R.J. Cyler, Nick Offerman, Molly Shannon, Jon Bernthal e Connie Britton.
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, 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.
Chissà che non sia anche a Cannes, a Un certain regard o alla Quinzaine.
