Cancer and Movies and the Dying Girl

About a month back I read Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. It wasn’t profound- not a whole lot happened. The novel is well written though, which kept me turning the pages, and the characters are interesting and believable. I was let down that nothing really happened in the end, but then again, most things in life aren’t wild and crazy. A movie adaptation was made last year and took home the Jury Prize at Sundance this year. Connie Britton, Nick Offerman, and Molly Shannon play the adults and the teens are all newcomers. I’ve heard nothing but praise for this movie, and after seeing the trailer I have high hopes! Below is a link to the trailer.
