Sundance Winner ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’ Official Trailer Released
One of the year’s most anticipated films has received its first trailer. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and written by Jesse Andrews (based on his novel), Me and Earl and the Dying Girl takes on the quickly cliche story of a teenager who befriends a girl with cancer.
Winner of both the Grand Jury and Audience Awards at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl joined recent hits Whiplash and Fruitvale Station for that honor. The last film to win the Sundance Grand Jury prize and fail to receive a Best Picture nomination was 2011’s Like Crazy. If the rave reviews coming out of the festival weren’t enough on their own, this is a good trend for the indie.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is set to be released by Fox Searchlight on June 12. Check out the trailer below!
