A touching, warm-hearted drama with a strong indie sensibility, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was a big hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it won both the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize. From the trailer you can see that it has a definite comedic approach to offset the dramatic elements, and it’s this combination that makes it look a worthwhile watch. With a cast that includes Nick Offerman, Molly Shannon, Jon Bernthal, and Thomas Mann, RJ Cyler and Olivia Cooke as the title characters, this could well prove to be a refreshing alternative to all the action oriented blockbusters hitting our screens in 2015.
