Movie Review: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

As nerds, we all have something that we’re passionate about. As nerds, it’s likely most of us were teased (or worse) about it. As nerds, we’ve held on tightly to that one friend from when we were young, and we’ve resisted change within our friend group (of two). This film is a nice bit of nostalgia in that regard. However, it also has some very uncomfortable moments, most of them related to the way Greg seems to make everything about himself in fairly typical straight white middle-class teenage angst.
