Me and Earl and the Dying Girl trailer shows the beginning of an unlikely friendship

Posted on

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘s Greg (Thomas Mann) is doing his best to survive high school, making sure that just about everyone likes him—or at least, doesn’t notice him. It doesn’t earn him many close friends, but it helps him get by. 

When he learns his classmate Rachel (Olivia Cooke) has been diagnosed with leukemia (and his parents not-so-gently nudge him to be a good neighbor), Greg has to learn how to actually care about one of his peers.

Me and Earl‘s new trailer expands on much of what the first trailer showed, but offers more of a look at Greg’s life before he meets Rachel, only to show just how much it changes afterward.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, which wowed audiences at Sundance, will hit theaters on June 12.
