Martin Scorsese On Me And Earl And The Dying Girl

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl features Greg, a high school senior who avoids deep human relationships as a way to safely navigate the social mine field that is teenage life. In fact he describes his best friend Earl, with whom he makes short-film parodies of classic movies, as being ‘more like a co-worker’. But when Greg’s mum insists he spends time with Rachel – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer- Greg discovers just how powerful and important true friendship can be.

Join director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and Martin Scorsese here as they talk about this uniquely funny and moving story.

Me And Earl And The Dying Girl is in UK cinemas from 4th September 2015.
