“When you convert a good book to a film. stupid things happen”
Jesse Andrews, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

“It's like when a kitten tries to bite something to death. The kitten clearly has the cold-blooded murderous instinct of a predator, but at the same time, it's this cute little kitten, and all you want to do is stuff it in a shoebox and shoot a video of it for grandmas to watch on YouTube.”
Jesse Andrews, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
