In the movie أنا وإيرل والفتاة المحتضرة, adapted by Jesse Andrews for the screen from his own novel, the teen protagonist Greg and his “co-worker” Earl remake classic movies and share them with Rachel, who has leukemia. As Greg explains, “we take a film we like. Give it a stupider title and make a new film to reflect the new title. It’s a formula that only produces horrible films, but for some reason we keep using it.” Here are the original classics that were remade in Me and Earl as Pooping Tom, Monorash، و Burden of Screams.
On Tuesday, May 26, the Museum will present a preview screening of أنا وإيرل والفتاة المحتضرة with director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon in person.
