Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Thomas Mann & RJ Cyler – “Me & Earl & the Dying Girl”

Mann has been building a solid resume over the past few years with starring turns in “Project X”and “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” but he’s said to make a significant leap in this Indian Paintbrush production. Meanwhile, Cyler gets his big break here as Mann’s best friend, and if Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s film can strike a chord with younger audiences, RJ Cyler could find himself on the verge of stardom. Olivia Cooke (“Bates Motel”) co-stars as their leukemia-stricken classmate who changes both of their lives.
