"Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" by Joanne

Take a geeky, insecure high school senior and his quirky friend, and a mother who won't take no for an answer, and throw in an intelligent, pretty girl with a deadly disease, and you have Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. You wouldn't think there would be many light moments in a film like this, but they are found. Many emotions are dealt with in this movie making it like life. 

M&E and DG is a coming of age movie about the young man, Gregg, and his gaining of confidence and self esteem. All performances of the new, young actors are enlightening and fresh. Highly recommended.
