2015 has been another great year for indie movies and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is set to be another that is not to be missed this September.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Jesse Andrews and will see Alfonso Gomez-Rejon back in the director's chair.

This is the second feature film for Gomez-Rejon and comes after he made his debut with horror movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown. TV fans will know him for his work on American Horror Story.

There's still a few weeks to go until Me and Earl and the Dying Girl hits the big screen but we have a couple of great new clips for you to take a look at:

Thomas Mann takes on the central role of Greg, while RJ Cyler and Olivia Cooke are on board as Earl and Rachel. Mann, Cyler, and Cooke have been making a name for themselves over the last couple of years and they are a trio of names that you need to keep an eye on going forward.

Nick Offerman, Connie Britton, Molly Shannon, and Jon Bernthal make up a cast list that is the perfect mix of experience and up and coming talent.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl follows Greg, a high school senior who avoids deep human relationships as a way to safely navigate the social mine field that is teenage life. In fact, he describes his best friend Earl, with whom he makes short-film parodies of classic movies, as being 'more like a co-worker'.

But when Greg's mum insists he spends time with Rachel - a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer - Greg discovers just how powerful and important true friendship can be.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl played at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year; where it was met with acclaim and went on to win the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is released 4th September.
