The Story Behind Sundance Smash Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
Posted by Becca on January 26, 2015 • Filed under: Articles/Interviews, Me and Earl and the Dying GirlLeave a message? / No Comments

I love this movie. I love this movie so, so, so much. Mere minutes into Sunday afternoon’s Sundance screening of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, I started involuntarily whispering those words to the fellow journalist sitting next to me. I laughed hard many, many times. I bawled for minutes on end. And like the rest of the audience, I rose to my feet to applaud while the credits were rolling, tears still streaming down my face.

More than any other movie that’s screened at Sundance 2015, Me and Earl feels like a breakout hit — it boasts an exciting second-time feature-film director, Alfonso Goméz-Rejón (who’s done Emmy-winning work as one of the most visually experimental directors on American Horror Story); a sharp first-time screenwriter, Jesse Andrews (adapting his own novel); and a virtually unknown young lead, Thomas Mann, whose previous work (2012’s house-party-gone-wild trifle Project X) didn’t exactly suggest that he was capable of such heavy lifting.

So what is the movie about? Well, there is terminal illness involved, and … keep reading only if you’re okay with possible SPOILERS. On the surface, Me and Earl is another sick-kid movie, about an outcast Pittsburgh boy, Greg, played by Mann, who’s forced by his mother (Connie Britton; Nick Offerman plays his weirdo sociology-professor dad) to be the cheer wagon for a classmate, Rachel (virtual newcomer Olivia Cooke), who’s been diagnosed with stage-four leukemia. What sets Me and Earl apart, though, is Greg’s unreliable narration, as a goofy kid who’s using humor, denial, and a giant imagination to keep from thinking about the devastation in front of him. He’s doing his best to distract Rachel by bringing her into the world he shares world with his best friend Earl (RJ Cyler), a black kid from a rougher neighborhood — the two spend their time irreverently remaking art-house classics. (Eyes Wide Butt, My Dinner With Andre the Giant, and A Sockwork Orange.) Director Goméz-Rejón, a former personal assistant to Martin Scorsese and Nora Ephron, among others, has both style and heart to spare, coming off like Wes Anderson and the Wallace & Gromit guys meet John Hugh

Connie Britton to join Michelle Obama at White House
Posted by Becca on January 26, 2015 • Filed under: Articles/Interviews, NewsLeave a message? / No Comments

Connie Britton is joining Michelle Obama at an awards ceremony at the White House honoring school counselors.

The actress played a school counselor in NBC’s now-defunct drama, “Friday Night Lights.”

The 2015 School Counselor of the Year awards, poised to be held Friday at the White House, is part of Obama’s “Reach Higher” initiative, which encourages students to extend their education beyond high school.

Britton, who currently stars in ABC’s “Nashville,” is a longtime President Obama supporter. Michelle Obama played herself in a cameo appearance on the show last year.

The ceremony isn’t the only celeb-infused event on tap for Obama that day.

As part of her “Joining Forces” initiative, Michelle Obama is teaming up Friday with the military veterans’ non-profit Got Your 6 and “industry leaders in film and television,” according to the White House. The first lady will deliver remarks at the National Geographic Society in downtown Washington to “encourage the entertainment industry to depict veterans in a way that better reflects the breadth and depth of their stories.”
