Trailer Reactions: Me and Earl and the Dying GirlSundance Film Festival '15 Trailer Reactions Trailers
I'm baaaaccckkk! The trailer to Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Sundance hit film Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is finally out! This film sold for a record-breaking 12 million dollars in a brutal bidding war that finally ended with Fox Searchlight winning the gold! The film won the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at Sundance and critics and audiences alike have been talking my ear off about it! And considering that this is one of the few films that I did not get to catch at Sundance, I am expecting a lot from hearing all this hype! The film is about a teenage filmmaker who befriends a classmate with cancer. It sounds pretty much like The Fault in Our Stars that came out last year but seeing the trailer now, there is a dash of Wes Anderson + Noah Baumbach feel to the film. With the hipster whimsy comes a pinch of real-life cynicism that plays into this kind of story that seems to be more complex and layered than your average young adult films. Regardless of anything you see in the trailer, I'm expecting to be blown away! Me and Earl and the Dying Girl comes out June 12, 2015!
