Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at this years Sundance, the adaptation of Jesse Andrews’ novel of the same name is Alfonso Gomez-Rejon‘s sophomore feature at the helm.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl also stars RJ Cyler, Nick Offerman, Jon Bernthal, Connie Britton and Molly Shannon. The film kicks off with a limited release in the US on June 12th. Enjoy the trailer below.

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.
