Watch: First Trailer for Sundance Hit 'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl'
After making a big splash at the 2015 Sundance film Festival at the beginning of the year, landing some big prizes at the indie showcase, the touching sensation Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is coming to theaters this summer, and the first trailer has just arrived. This film was one of our favorites at Sundance in January, and Alex said, "theperformances from the two leads are exceptional and the story pulls viewers in with genuine humor and heart." The story follows a friendship that blossoms between an awkward boy and a girl with cancer, but it's not just another Fault in Our Stars. This one is very special in its own way. Watch!
