"Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is a sweet film that sucks you in through its style and holds your attention (and emotions) as the characters become increasingly engaging and heartfelt. I loved this film. I loved the writing, I loved the performances, the directorial style, the cinematography, and especially the characterizations. It cleverly and uniquely takes you down a path full of surprises. It's touching without ever being too cutesy and it's consistently funny, and when the moments come, "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is rather hard-hitting. This is a very good, very well crafted and highly entertaining drama with tons of heart, humor and style, more than a film fan can ever ask for in a movie.

No need to say that this is a fantastic movie

"I don't need your stupid pity. It's fine, you can just go. No, no. You got it all wrong. I'm not here 'cause I pity you. I'm actually here because my mom is making me. That's actually worse."

There are movies I really could dwell on in a lyrical way. Because it's put together cleverly and cunningly. Or because I could empathize with the characters. Or because the humorous content was taken up throughout the story in a professional way. Call me oversensitive or sentimental. But "Me and Earl and The Dying Girl" is a movie that I'm extremely lyrical about. Firstly, because they tackled such an emotional subject in a very clever and witty way. Without significant effort they could have made a major tearjerker out of it, so Kleenex would suddenly see a miraculous growth...

Deeper Than Expected

'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl' is a hard one to pin down. It wants to be so many things at once. The opening started off too strong for me. The overall quirky, self-knowing indie vibe that began the movie was a bit off-putting. It felt like a textbook example of all the cliches found in this sub-genre of indie comedy teen flicks. The directing/editing choices also felt as a purposeful homage to Wes Anderson. Almost, but not quite, to the point of being labeled a rip-off. Constant movie references and shameless Criterion promotion was abound. This all made it initially difficult for me to get into the film. Most of that dissipates over time, and the story gradually unfolds with ease. The quirky presentation takes a back-seat for the second half. The humor gives way to a much m...
