Many people, in making friends with some new friends, I had time to realize that it will be a communication "to the grave". However, many faced and still face with the situation when for any reason the friendship turns into a periodic communication, then throwing out a few words, and finally breaks all contact. But if by chance fate brings people together, they already a new beginning to appreciate these relations. The value of friendship has become the main theme of the tragicomedy "me, Earl and the dying girl".

synopsis Senior Greg — the usual outstanding teen. In school, he keeps to himself, trying not to make enemies. In everyday life prefer making Amateur movies in the company of a friend of Earl's. All it flew slowly and steadily, until one day the mother did not asked to provide emotional support to the girl-child Rachel, where he I were early childhood and has been recently diagnosed with leukemia.

Despite the young age of the performers, the film differs quite a talented cast. First of all, I would like to mention Thomas Mann in the role of Greg, a regular teenager with his talent with their systems, but with genuine ability to value friendship. Also it is necessary to praise the work of Olivia Cooke in the role of Rachel, cheerful dying from cancer of a teenage girl who, despite the disease, prefers to lead a normal full life. Of the minor role, I would pick Molly Shannon in the role of caring and good-natured mother Rachel.

Director Alfonso Gomez-rejon took the classic teen Comedy drama, in which addresses the themes of friendship and death. The Director very subtly and with a sense of humor is trying to convey the difficult life of a teenager, realizing on the screen the stream of consciousness, the storm of emotions that one experiences on stage of growing up, when first confronted with death, forcing it to really appreciate the friendship, love and simple human connection. In same time the Director is a bit delayed the dynamics of the film, why you at times I cease to understand and what is happening on the screen. But slowly, the Director fills the atmosphere with a note of tragedy, which is not makes you cry, likely to overestimate many things.

Plot of the painting is narrated from the face of the protagonist describing his simple complicated life of a teenager who is going to finish the last class and select in their lives. Greg does not like to enter into the conflict, and therefore supports the trust-based relationships with all the social groups in school. Spare time he prefer to the company's "colleagues" Earl, with which takes Amateur films parodying famous feature films. And once pushy parents trying to persuade Greg to support it childhood friend Rachel. Gradually the reluctance and mutual subring grow in true friendship. But the closer one becomes aware not called the end, the heavier characters is the company of a friend.

Summary Despite the relative slowness of, "me, Earl and the dying girl" nice for watching a movie that makes you smile, sympathize and think about important things. Although this movie can not be called entertaining, the viewer will find the film something of my own.

A lot of people already laid out on the shelves, the plot, the script, the acting, music and other important things (which in this movie, by the way, perfect), so I just share your experiences.

After each viewing of this film, I wanted to write a review, but was too lazy. Here after the 3rd viewing of this film, I still have decided to speak and find adjectives that would have come to this wonderful my most favorite movie. Although most are not there are adjectives that would have described the movie as I would want to describe. Their no.

When reviewing the film, I find something new: new notice the fine detail and the reference to other films, find new questions and answers to them, understand subtle jokes and the irony of it all better. And every time I reviewing with delight in this movie, with every time I feel the trembling in the body, reviewing a brilliant scene in the hospital where the background nerealnaya playing "Brian Eno — The Big Ship". This do the movie that you can revise forever and test the same emotions viewer, and first time.

Me, Earl and the dying girl — very funny, subtle, tragic and sometimes heartbreaking movie. It is an indie film that stands out for its originality in everything: photography, humor and the very concept. And I'm seeing a lot of movies of this genre, and close to nothing saw the original. As well aware that the fact that, despite the abundance of all sorts of pop-snotty dramas, there are really excellent pictures in this genre, though their little.

The best in its genre.

The film "me, Earl and the dying girl" is one of those movies about you unlikely heard the back of the Internet, and which most likely not went to the cinema. This film is not received sky-high ratings, awards, and barely paid off in the rental. A real dark horse. The film tells the story Of... the name suggests, about what he tells. The protagonist of the film — detached from companies high school student at the name, Greg (Thomas Mann), who's going to have to finish school and enroll in College. Have no friends and the only other name Earl (by R. J. sayler) he used to call a colleague. They and Earl make movies. Absurd movie that the main character thinks it sucks, yeah and he didn't used to talking lofty epithets. He lives the typical American family, typical American is burdened with problems. A nearby family neighbors a young girl Rachel (Olivia Cooke) discover leukemia. And suddenly that Greg and Earl are the people who can support her in a difficult situation. Friendships between them, they begin spending time together. Greg and Earl and Rachel show their stupid movies, in which it finds solace.

It would seem that the case for happy end they lived long and happily. But not just tearful teenage story film ready to present to the viewer. At large the film is a set of ideas and theses that he reveals through visual images. What should do the film. Ideas in a lot of it. Greg shows a normal teenager with your teenage suffering, and film and it shows how ridiculous look of those suffering the background of the girl, who is dying from cancer. Many criticized the film for it but my opinion opposite this time conceived to be so, moreover, the film is at this works. In addition, it is possible to find the opposition of how he sees himself a typical teenager and how his see more. Could always be people who appreciate what you do. In the end, despite the tone of the ending, it leaves you with positive emotions. The film is very well motivates the viewer. Motivates you to believe in yourself, in others, to strive for more hard to continue to do what do you like shows like it is important to be with family contrary to leave them when they need it. The however, it should be noted that shot it completely outside the box. The story and the Central idea of the film coming through exaggerated and sometimes even absurd images, scenes, and situations. Many laughing at funeral. But know in the film is working least I thought so.

It is very difficult to assess, so I will not. It is clearly not consumer picture. He was withdrawn as not for profit in service in order to convey to the viewer some thoughts. Personally, me he has caused a strong emotional response, so that me this personal "ten of ten". I can not guarantee that you would like the same, but definitely worth a try.
