Deeply moving, irreverent film about friends, cancer, life.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is an irreverent, heartfelt, thoughtful, and very funny dramedy based on the same-named book by Jesse Andrews. You know from the title that a teen girl is dying (cancer), so it's no spoiler to say that although the movie is quite humorous and sarcastic, it also explores intense subject matter, including post-high school boredom/lack of direction, fear of intimacy, and mortality. Expect some swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k"), cigarette and pot smoking by teens, and drinking -- but ultimately the take-away is that illness can ravage the body but not the soul, and friendship can conquer it.
