Senior year is eventful for any teenager, but that goes double for Greg (Thomas Mann), when his mom (Connie Britton) volunteers his services as companion to leukemia-stricken classmate Rachel (Olivia Cooke). Along with his filmmaking partner, Earl (RJ Cyler), they’re a modern-day Mod Squad battling high school hierarchies and deadly disease with dubious advice from the works of Werner Herzog and Greg’s super-slacker dad (Nick Offerman in peak form) (105 min.).
