“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” Boston Screening and VIP Giveaway


Okay Boston film enthusiasts, we’ve got a pretty cool giveaway for one lucky winner here, so participation is key. For screening passes, make sure to follow the link; however, one lucky fan will win a VIP package for a winner + four friends to get reserved seating, ME AND EARL movie t-shirts, and a $100 gift card to The Friendly Toast in Kendall Square. The screening is Tuesday, June 16th.

Sounds pretty great right?

So here’s the deal. To enter, all you have to do is write in the comment section about a fictional character that you’d like to be BFFs with. They can be from a television show, a book, a film or, hey, one of our writers even picked one from a video game. The contest ends Friday, June 12th so go, go, gooooo.

Check out who some of the TYF Staff picked as their choices along with the synopsis for the film and the trailer below. Personally, I’ve had a hard time picking who my choice would be. Part of me thinks Leslie Knope would be the BEST friend ever, but the Broad City girls seem pretty fun. However, then there’s childhood me who can’t deny how much I’d like to be friends with the Golden Trio from Harry Potter for a day.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life.  He even describes his constant companion Earl (R.J. Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a ‘co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke)–a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer–he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be.

    If I could be BFF’s with a fictional character, I’d like to be BFF’s George Zinavoy from the Art of Getting By. Although he initially seems a bit irresponsible since he didn’t really care about anything (including school), he is unique, kind, and learns to open up to the people he cares about. He is also a very good artist, which is cool since I’m not very good at drawing.

    Katsa from the Graceling series by Kristin Cashore is already my BFF in my head. She’s so amazing because she’s both fierce and passionate. She would definitely have to teach me how to fight as well as she does. I teach self-defense but her skills are unmatched. We’re both stubborn,independent, and value our authenticity so we would get along really well.
