Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015)

Based on a novel by Jesse Andrews (who also wrote the screenplay), Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was a massive hit at Sundance, although by the time it hit theaters, the hype seemed to have worn off. The actual movie falls somewhere in-between: it's not a masterpiece, but it's funny and pretty entertaining. It is something of a disease-of-the-week movie, but like the better examples of that genre, it doesn't actually focus on the disease. High school senior Greg (Thomas Mann) is a self-described outcast whose only activities are avoiding other people at school, and making funny little parody films with his "co-worker" Earl (RJ Cyler). (Titles include A Sockwork Orange and Eyes Wide Butt, though they are particularly fond of Werner Herzog.) When his mother (Connie Britton) hears that a classmate, Rachel (Olivia Cooke) has cancer, she pushes Greg into paying her a visit. The visits become a regular thing, and soon, Greg allows her to see his films. That leads to the proposition that Greg and Earl make a film just for Rachel, but they have no idea what to make and time is running out. First-time director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon keeps the mood alive and quirky, allowing genuine sadness to seep in at the corners; Mann's narration helps nail down the mood. Jon Bernthal plays a helpful teacher who lets Greg and Earl eat lunch in his office and watch classic films, Molly Shannon is Rachel's mom, swilling a lot of white wine, and Nick Offerman is typically hilarious as Greg's father, who likes to eat strange foods. read more...

The Way, Way Back (2013)

Coming-of-age stories in movies are a dime-a-dozen, and they frequently seem to be based on other coming-of-age movies, rather than actual humans that came of age. But The Way, Way Back (2013) — named for the place that kids used to ride in old Station Wagons — is both hilarious and touching, digging just a little deeper than usual. Teen Duncan (Liam James) is forced to go on a summer holiday to Cape Cod with his mother (Toni Collette), her condescending boyfriend Trent (Steve Carell), and Trent's unpleasant daughter (Zoe Levin). Dismayed by the drinking and cheating of the adults around him, he goes exploring and discovers the Water Wizz theme park. There, he meets the cocky, irresponsible, but likable Owen (Sam Rockwell), who takes Duncan under his wing. Rockwell is hilarious, turning in one of those intoxicatingly carefree performances a la Bill Murray, but grounded in something real. Like the best coming-of-age movies, this one is rooted in pain and uncertainty, which makes the good stuff all the sweeter. It was co-written and co-directed by a pair of actors: Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. read more...

The Edge of Seventeen (2016)

Hailee Steinfeld stars in The Edge of Seventeen, which feels like one of those rare teen movies that actually gets teens right, rather than a fantasy party movie or a fantasy romance. She's the unsettled outsider Nadine, whose beloved father has suddenly passed away; she was clearly his favorite, while her mother (Kyra Sedgwick) favors her older brother, the chiseled, perfect Darian (Blake Jenner). Things get worse when Nadine's best friend -- her only friend -- Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) falls in love with Darian. Meanwhile, she becomes obsessed with a boy at school and winds up in an awkward position with him. Her only outlet for all this involves going to a cynical teacher and bending his ear. He, Mr. Bruner (Woody Harrelson), offers nothing in the way of compassion and merely flings insults her way (which she handles beautifully); their scenes together are a high point. read more...

The Heartbreak Kid (1972)

Elaine May directs this uncomfortable comedy with uncanny skill and intelligence, magically balancing the story of a poor schmuck (Charles Grodin) who suddenly realizes he's married the wrong girl (Jeannie Berlin) when he falls madly for a blonde, man-eating goddess (Cybill Shepherd) -- during his honeymoon. (Like May's other films, it tells the story of a betrayal between a couple.) Using comedy, pathos and a hint of tragedy, May somehow coaxes us along with a sense of truth, and though the result may not exactly be a classic romantic comedy, it's certainly an outstanding movie. This is the second of only four movies that May directed in her extraordinary career. read more...
