We're Presenting A Screening Of Me and Earl and The Dying Girl, And You Should Come!

Confession: I've been getting into YouTube lately.

I'm just completely fascinated by it, mostly because I think it represents well a number of interesting societal shapes, not the least of which is an altered, hyper-aware American speaking cadence and its the ironically detached tone so often paired with it. Perhaps the clearest example of this can be found in the works of the vlogbrothers, who've influenced a whole generation of teenage video bloggers with their too-cool-for-school-but-actually-haha-no-way-c'mon way of talking.

You'd think this speech pattern would've more prominently taken over the teen-driven hivemind that is Hollywood at this point, but aside from maybe Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, it really hasn't — not even in the film adaptation of The Fault In Our Stars, which was based on the book by John Green, who just so happens to be one of aforementioned vlogbrothers.

Now, though, comes a film that, if not aiming to be the voice of a generation, very much looks like it at least wants to be its mouthpiece — the Sundance Grand Jury Prize- and Audience Award-winning Me and Earl and The Dying Girl, a teen-dramedy that mines similar territory to TFIOS and is also a book adaptation but at least appears to carry itself with some sense of humor.

To see — and hear — what I mean, check out the below trailer.

Every single of of the feels, right? Yup, that's all of 'em.

Now, here's the super cool part about this movie and why we're even discussing it in the first place: On Thursday, June 11, at 7:30 p.m., we're presenting a free-to-attend advance screening of the film at the Magnolia in West Village.

Want passes? Yeah you do! So then go on right ahead and click here, where you can then register your attendance and print out your pass, which you'll need to bring with you to get into the screening itself.

A couple notes, though: The same first-come, first-served rules apply to this one as with all screenings, which is to say that these passes will get you in, but they don't guarantee you late entry; once the theater is full, you won't be able to get in, so be sure to get to the spot early.

We know you will.
