Yeah, I know, we’re on another teen drama BUT it’s not a cliché. Ok, rapid cuts, stop motion animation and a well balanced set design that reminds us the big Wes A. is the right prototype of a Sundance winner. That it is
We’ve got Greg, Earl and Rachel. We’ve got emotions and sickness and confusion and love till this will tear them apart. Two friends and a girl, a dying girl. Greg wants to spend most of his time alone except for his only friend Earl. They remake old movies and live like in a limbo. Rachel’s got sick and Greg’s mother think they could be friends. Honey bee, is that a joke? Nope. Both of them are surprised to like each other but not prepared about their life will change. Forever. you must pencil it because you’ll find poetry, delicate, a strange film narrative idea to try and live forever. This could be a love story, or a sort of, but it’s a shame that Greg’s story is been chosen instead of Rachel one.
