A movie teens should watch. If you liked Fault in our Stars you will love this movie.

"We're not even friends." Greg (Mann) is finally a senior. He as survived high school by trying to be invisible to everyone and not causing any drama. When his mother tells him that a classmate (Cooke) has been diagnosed with cancer and that he should hang out with her he hesitates. What starts off as something he is forced to do actually helps him to become who he truly is. If you have teenagers this is a movie they should watch. The movie is a mix of Fault in our Stars and Perks of Being a Wallflower. There is humor and drama in this but the best part about it is that it feels real and nothing about it is forced. The movie could have easily been cheesy and almost after-school-special-like but it stays away from that and becomes something that is truly special. It isn't anything all that original but the writing and acting really make this one of the better movies of this genre and I recommend it. Overall, a movie that could have been very hokey but instead turned out to be very real and heartfelt. A movie teens should watch. If you liked Fault in our Stars you will love this movie. I give it a high B+.

A Gem of a Movie About Why Life Is So Precious

I saw this film on a four hour flight. I had it on my list of films to see, but I never got around to seeing it. What we have here is a classically gifted child who tries to hide in the bushes. His friend is a down-to-earth black kid who comes from humble roots. His contributions are more basic. He has a seemingly dangerous brother. The star is a filmmaker, taking classics like "Apocalypse Now" and "Breathless" and turning them into truncated parodies. The titles are probably better than the movies. One day, his somewhat overbearing mother, lets him know that a classmate of his, a young woman, has leukemia, and that it would be nice to for him to visit her. He reluctantly goes to see her, and it is only his explanation that his mother will make it hell for him if he doesn't spend time with her. What develops is a fascinating connection between the two and love at arm's length. Earl is only a part time player and not a great factor, other than being a refreshing distraction. What makes this movie so wonderful is the natural development of love and friendship, the realities of the illness, and a slow revealing of truths between the two characters. The movie is funny at times and never maudlin, although it has its dark moments as well. I'd not heard of the kids playing the roles, but they are strikingly poignant in their delivery. Nick Offerman, who is only in a couple scenes, plays the father of the boy. He steals every scene he is in. He is an experimenter with life where the young man experiments with film. See this.

All about Greg

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl tries too hard to be a hip and quirky dramedy. Instead it feels like another derivative independent film with tinges of sadness.

Greg (Thomas Mann) and childhood buddy, Earl (RJ Cyler) have made numerous bad parody films with titles such as Death in Tennis, A Sockwork Orange and My Dinner with Andre the Giant.

Greg is detached and self absorbed. He refers to Earl as his co-worker rather than best friend, in fact his only friend. Greg's parents force him to be friendly with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) a girl he knew from kindergarten who has been diagnosed with leukemia.

The self centered Greg develops a warm relationship with the dying Rachel and he sets about making an original film for her.

The film is a little too knowing, trying too hard to be eccentric. The characters of Earl and Rachel are actually not well developed. It is all about Greg and he is not that interesting. While Earl and his brother come across as horrible black stereotypes.
