Alfonso Gomez-Rejon knows how cancer movies can go and he pushes Me and Earl and the Dying Girl in a different direction. I love how the screenplay retains the book’s focus on Greg’s self-loathing* something I was sure would be toned down. I also appreciate a cancer film where the patient isn’t chipper about her fate and a movie that manages to combine hilarity and tears in a completely organic fashion.

Verdict: Recommended

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

*Possibly due to the fact that Jessie Andrews wrote both the book and the screenplay.
