RJ Cyler (l.) and Thomas Mann in Me and Earl and The Dying Girl

Meet Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann, It’s Kind of a Funny Story), a quirky teenager trying to coast through high school while making hilariously mediocre film parodies with his “coworker” Earl (RJ Cyler). But when he is forced to spend time with a terminally ill classmate at the request of his meddling mother (Connie Britton, Women in Trouble), Greg embarks on his most ambitious project yet: to let his guard down and connect with those around him in ways he never imagined.

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, the limited release movie grossed a so-so $6.7 million at the domestic box office in in June of this year.
