ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is a drama about an aspiring film maker who befriends a girl from his school who is battling cancer.

Language

There is a single spoken use of strong language ('f**k'), employed by way of adding emphasis to a statement and not directed at anyone else. There are also some partially bleeped uses of strong language and a partially obscured written use. Other bad language is milder, including uses of 'dick', 'bitch' and 'shit'.

Sex

There are some moderate sex references, in particular when one of the young male characters talks about masturbation and another refers to parts of the female anatomy.

Drugs

Two of the characters unwittingly ingest some drugs and start acting in a bizarre and uncontrolled way. Their reaction to the effects of the drug is negative and does not, therefore, promote drug use.

The film as a whole has a theme dealing with terminal illness and bereavement.
