Free Advance Screening: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
June 24, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
Join the Austin Film Festival at the Regal Arbor Theater for an advanced screening of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Me and Earl and 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 (R.J. 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.
This screening is free and open to the public. This event is first come first serve therefore this RSVP does not guarantee entry. We recommend arriving at least an hour in advance in order to get into the screening.
