Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a good title

5 second plot: Greg tells us the story of his senior year. He had everything figured out. Hanging low, not drawing too much attention at school, making films with his colleague Earl. And then his mom makes him hang out with a girl that's been diagnosed with leukemia. Although he's reluctant at first, they become close friends.

5 second review: The title is not the best pitch to convince someone to go see a movie, but it does sum this one up quite well. The story is half joy and fun and half tough and sad. The dialogue is really good, the performances are off the charts and it's brilliantly original.

IMDb score: 8,1/10
