Fox Searchlight Pictures has released an international trailer for Me and Earl and The Dying Girl.
Based on the Jesse Andrews novel of the same name, the film centers on Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior wallflower obsessed with making homemade movies who is coerced into hanging out with a classmate, Rachel (Olivia Cooke), who has just discovered that she has been diagnosed with leukemia. As he begins to spend more time with her, he soon discovers that the bond of friendship has an even deeper meaning than he previously thought. Check out the full trailer below.
Aside from films like Dope and the near-empty attendance of Jupiter Ascending, Sundance attendees couldn’t stop raving about Me and Earl and The Dying Girl. The movie won top honors at the film festival earlier this year, and now it has its first trailer.
The film, from director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story), is based on the Jesse Andrews novel of the same name, which centers around a film obsessed high school senior forced to interact with a classmate who has just been diagnosed with leukemia. Hit the jump to check it out.
