Me And Earl And The Dying Girl (2015)

January 15, 2016

Starring: Thomas Mann, RJ Cyler, Olivia Cooke, Nick Offerman, Connie Britton, Molly Shannon, Jon Bernthal
Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (“American Horror Story,” “Glee”)

Bottom Line: This small movie about a boy that is forced to befriend a dying girl by his mother got quite a bit of buzz during the summer. While the story is touching and the acting from the young cast is pretty good, it’s also a tad bit boring. I have found it very difficult to write reviews of movies that left very little impression on me, so rather than waste a bunch of time thinking of ways to convey feelings I don’t even really have, I’ll just say Me And Earl And The Dying Girl is a moderately enjoyable film that probably isn’t as heartwarming as it was hoping to be.

Replay Value: One viewing is enough for me.
Sequel Potential: None.
Oscar Potential: None..

Grade: 4.5/10 (Watchable/Forgettable)
