The hype surrounding Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s Me and Earl and the Dying Girl when it premiered at Sundance was enormous. The film went on to win the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize at 2015’s festival, it sparked a huge bidding war to eventually be released by Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush, and the reviews were nothing short of incredible.

Back when Dylan Griffin reviewed the film for Sound on Sight, he said to believe the hype.

Just released today was the first trailer for the film, and immediately it’s clear how stylish, unusual and poignant the story is, a step up from the blockbuster that was the similar story The Fault in Our Stars. Here’s the official synopsis:

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 (RJ 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.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is based on both the book and screenplay by Jesse Andrews. It stars Olivia Cooke, Thomas Mann, RJ Clyer, Connie Britton, Nick Offerman, and Molly Shannon, and releases in theaters June 12. Watch the trailer below:
