Greg is an introvert high school student, skilled in self -mockery, who aspires to finish his senior year in the best possible way. He spends most of his time with his only friend, Earl, re-creating his own versions of good classic movies. But his desire not to go unnoticed was shattered when his mother forced him to see Rachel, an old kindergarten friend with leukemia.

10. This is the number of sessions, nationwide, this first week for Me, Earl and the Dying Lady. And that, just, it’s not normal. I suspect the film will never have much commercial success in France, but 10? If you can see what’s coming out each week in theaters, there’s reason to ask. For this This is not a love story is a marvel. As its French name suggests, it is not du …

“This is not a love story” is adapted from Jesse Andrew’s novel “Me and Earl and The Dying Girl,” published in 2012. Directed by the writer, the film was shot entirely in Pittsburgh, his hometown and especially in his own house, which serves as the setting for Greg, the film’s hero. The choice of fulfillment is based on a division of chapters like the book from which it came. Each cut-out announces …

A film that will mark me. Common base themes (American high school, illness), treatment with kindness, originality and a magical universe. We didn’t doubt for a moment that the director was a true cinema lover. The cinema club passages, the amazing film parodies, the stop motion passages … and the best thing about it all is that the production doesn’t ruin the characters – it’s just interesting, .. .

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon did very well. This uniquely staged dramatic comedy showcases a friendly atmosphere that will take you immediately; it benefits from a very good music score and beautiful images. The scenario, however serious and somewhat familiar, gently gives a beautiful story; cinematographic references that offer beautiful surreal moments. The dialogues take turns …

No luck

In 2012, the script for the film featured on the famous Blacklist of promising scripts that hadn’t been done yet.

This is the first time young actress Olivia Cooke has not starred in a horror film, nor in a science fiction film. Best known to the public for his involvement in horror thrillers like Ouija or the Bates Motel series. As he honors these roles to give him fame, he is excited to explore a new genre of film.

A case in point!

The film was purchased by Fox Searchlight for a modest $ 12 million at the Sundance festival in January 2015. It received a warm welcome and went with the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Prize.

    Without much interest.Pseudo-philosophical gossip poorly covers up the futility of this film without novelty or spontaneity, which, horribly, shows up with French intellectualism (cf., in the room of hero, the poster of Four Hundred Plagues).
