Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

Greg Gaines is the last master of high school espionage, able to disappear at will into any social environment. He has only one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time making movies, their own incomprehensible versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics.

Until Greg’s mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel.

Rachel has been diagnosed with leukemia—-cue extreme adolescent awkwardness—-but a parental mandate has been issued and must be obeyed. When Rachel stops treatment, Greg and Earl decide the thing to do is to make a film for her, which turns into the Worst Film Ever Made and becomes a turning point in each of their lives.

And all at once Greg must abandon invisibility and stand in the spotlight.

Now Is Good is a teen romantic drama film directed by Ol Parker. The first trailer for the film was released on 5 March Tessa, a teen with terminal acute lymphoblastic leukemia , aided by her best friend Zoey, fulfills an undisclosed bucket list before her impending death. One night, both attempt to engage in sex with their partner. Tessa goes on a radio talk show with her overbearing single father where she pokes fun at her terminal diagnosis and approaches it with humour. Tessa is loving and caring towards her brother Cal whom she feels guilty for stealing her parent's attention from, and gives him days that are all about him while dealing with her father trying to treasure every moment he has left with his daughter while her mother is supportive, but is rarely there for her.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to a standing ovation. He learns that fellow student and former childhood friend of his, Rachel Kushner Olivia Cooke , has been diagnosed with leukemia and is forced by his parents Nick Offerman and Connie Britton to befriend her in her time of need. Despite an awkward first encounter on Rachel's staircase, with neither of them truly wanting the other's company, Greg manages to strike up a conversation about her pillow collection. She comes to find his quirky personality endearing, and they make plans to meet on a regular basis. Greg introduces Rachel to his friend Earl RJ Cyler , with whom he makes short films parodying famous film titles. Despite Greg's reluctance, Earl shares their collection of short films with her, which she finds entertaining.
