Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
November 1985. The troubled streets of Belfast are torn up by rioting yet again. Nine-year-old Tommy dribbles a ball through the angry mob. There’s only one thing on his football-mad mind – the forthcoming World Cup, where tiny Northern Ireland will take on the mighty Brazil. For the South American giants it’s just another step on the path to inevitable global domination, yet for Northern Ireland, and young Tommy, it’s the biggest game of their lives.
