I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention the brilliant cinematography and camera work in the film. Earl flashes a bright neon sign that says "I'm an Art House Film" but interestingly offers glimpses of a Wes Anderson film as well. One scene in particular was at Greg's school where the camera pans straight up and we see Greg's face being boxed in by a window - making the setting almost like a toy house. This is a technique that Anderson has been known for and it was cool how the scene reminded me of his work.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a real(er) The Fault in Our Stars with a voice of its own. It's authentic and believable with a dash of humor. If you can find it in a theater near you, go see it.
