As Alfonso Gomez-Rejon‘s Sundance title hits theaters this weekend, buzz won’t let up for the coming-of-age drama staring Thomas Mann and Olivia Cooke.
Mann (“Project X”) serves as unreliable narrator Greg in the wrenching drama, as he befriends a classmate stricken with leukemia (Cooke), learning as much about himself as he does the dying girl of the title.
Without the benefit of a major movie star or a bestselling novel as source material, as the similarly themed “Fault In Our Stars” had, “Me and Earl” holds up with beautiful performances, score and direction from Gomez-Rejon.
