Uniquely normal and different

I saw a good movie. It was different....

"ME and EARL and the DYING GIRL"

This movie was not released in India. It is not a normal "normal" movie. The way it is scripted is slightly different. It is based on a debut novel of Jesse Andrews with the same name.

Greg (Thomas Mann) is a loner in high school. He is forced by his parents to meet a childhood friend Rachel (Olivia Cooke) who has been diagnosed with cancer. At first neither of two are interested in each other, but Greg's quirkiness interests Rachel and they meet regularly. Grey introduces her to his friend Earl (RJ Cyler) with whom he is making parodies of famous films.

Earl convinces Greg to spend more time with Rachel. Grey , unknowingly sacrifices his life, his studies, his work, because he wants to make a film for Rachel. When Rachel's opts out of chemotherapy, Greg is devastated and argues with her and fights with Earl.who thinks Greg is very insensitive person.

When Rachel - in the final stage of cancer and admitted to hospital -depresses Grey more. In the end Greg visits Rachel to show the film he made for her. While watching the film Rachel falls in a coma and dies after few hours. Greg reads a letter written by Rachel. He realizes that like him Rachel too was in LOVE. Greg pens down a book about his LOVE and along with the video mails it to his college.

The film reflects a deeper complexities of feelings among two people in LOVE - who meet each other, exchange and talk to each other - but face an ordeal to cognizant & accept their LOVE feeling...

Director Alfanso who was an assistant to Martin Scorsese wanted to show his style of film-making sensibilities reflecting the loss he faced in life of his father through this film

He does a commendable job directing this unique interesting film. Thomas Mann and Olivia Cooke have acted well along with Rj Cyler, whose role as Earl is a bit curtailed in the movie. The movie grabbed several awards and nominations in many festivals. The songs of the movie are heart-warming.

It is a good watch for people who are not in touch with their own sense of inner LOVE and unaware of their feelings of LOVE for others.

I would go with 6.25

Most Beautiful Movie I've Ever Seen, Not to Mention Hilarious

It's rare that I give a movie a 10 out of 10. Yet, I had good reason. This movie was hands down the most beautifully developed and heart-wrenchingly performed movie I've ever seen. It really made me realize that there are still good people, and people who appreciate good people, out there. Though it's a movie, movies like this can only be based on real life experiences that really rip your heart apart.

Greg is so quirky and awkward, but in a rare and hilarious way, and Earl just adds to the hilarity. His pure genuineness, kindness, and 'over-the-top humility,' as Rachel put it, come packaged in that awkward casing; deep down you knew those former qualities were always there, but they truly emerge and blossom as you see him give of himself to Rachel day in and day out. He almost sacrificed his senior year and future for her. That is true friendship and love at its finest.

Though Greg started spiraling (understandably) when he found out Rachel was stopping treatment, he showed his true colors when he brought the corsage to the hospital to give to his date. My heart was very satisfied when I heard that ambulance as he got out of the limo. He proved to be a real gentleman and good person, which are rare commodities nowadays.

I think the beauty of the movie truly hit me at the end of the movie when they revealed quirky and artistic things about Rachel even after her death. (On a side note, I knew that I couldn't believe Greg when he said she wouldn't die That was the only thing he said in that movie that didn't sound genuine.) As Greg walked through the room, perusing her shelves of concave book art, and as I watched him trace the squirrel's path from wall tree to wall tree, hearing him describe the story behind her ashes being thrown in the park behind her house, I couldn't help but fall in love with her character and the movie as a whole. The ending was frustrating and painful and deeply heart-wrenching, but piercingly beautiful. I would watch this 1,000 times more. I don't know if I even want to watch another movie like it because I'll always have this profound, magnificent.movie to compare it to. I am deeply wonderfully satisfied.

Realistic, sometimes poignant, and mostly-fun film

'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl' is a solid coming-of-age film - it's charming and funny and definitely not as depressing as the title may have you believe. It's a simple concept - the not-quite nerdy, not-quite cool high-schooler, Greg (Mann), is forced by his mum to hang out with a classmate who has just being diagnosed with leukaemia, Rachel (Cooke). It's starts off as an awkward friendship, but slowly turns into genuine friendship.

Earl (Cyler) is great as Greg's only friend (or "co-worker" as he calls him) and lots of the film's fun comes from the parodies they make together of classic films - such as 'Senior Citizen Cane', 'The Seven Seals', 'A Sockwork Orange', 'Eyes Wide Butt' & my favourite, 'Grumpy Cul-de-Sacs'! - most featuring clever animation and hilarious ultra-low-budget imitations. Earl acts as Greg's conscience when he turns into a shellfish teenager and forgets about Rachel's actual problems. The parents (Shannon, Offerman & Britton) all have some great scenes.

The film's score, by Brian Eno, is fantastic and really adds to the emotion, especially towards the end. The finale is handled well and shows impact we can have others' lives by just being there for them. Sure, it's sad in parts, but it's realistic and it is nice to watch how Greg and Rachel handle the situation mostly with good-humour. The funny moments outweigh the sad ones and make this an enjoyable film.
