Contest: Win Passes to See an Advance Screening of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

We're offering 30 (yes, 30) pairs of tickets to see a special advance screening of Fox Searchlight Pictures' Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, starring Thomas Mann, Olivia Cooke and DC's own Jon Bernthal for FREE. The screening takes place on Thursday, May 28th at AMC Georgetown. It starts at 7:30, but seats are first-come, first-served; so winners are encouraged to show up sooner (between 6:45 and 7:00 PM.) Fill in the entry form below, and we'll select up to 30 winners to receive a pass for two. Winners will be notified via e-mail, and passes will be sent electronically (no waiting!) All entries must be received before Monday, May 25th at 11:59 PM EST. Good luck!

The screening will be immediately followed by a special Q&A with actors Thomas Mann (PROJECT X) and Olivia Cooke (THE QUIET ONES, THE SIGNAL, OUIJA) and director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (GLEE). Me and Earl and the Dying Girl opens in select theaters, June 12th.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life. He even describes his constant companion Earl (R.J. Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a 'co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer,  he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be.
