Fox Searchlight has released a new UK trailer for the Sundance favourite Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, which you can watch below after the official synopsis…
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.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is set for release June 12th in the States and September 11th in the UK, with Alfonso Gomez-Rejon directing a cast that includes Thomas Mann, RJ Cyler, Olivia Cooke, Jon Bernthal, Molly Shannon, Nick Offerman and Connie Britton.
