Watch: A Conversation with Thomas Mann on ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’

Thomas Mann might not be an immediately recognizable name, but he has built an impressive resume of film credits over the last few years, including Welcome to Me, The Stanford Prison Experiment, and, mostly visibly, the 2015 Sundance Film Festival U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic and the Audience Award-winning Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. The 24 year-old actor’s latest film, Amityville: The Awakening, opens today in theaters.

Earlier this year, Mann sat with his Me and Earl and the Dying Girl director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon for a conversation presented by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation moderated by Discovery Films CEO John Alan Simon. The two reflected on the impact of having a film that was so well received at Sundance has had on their careers.
