Hazel and Gus are two sensational teens who share a sharp wit, and disrespect for the ordinary. After meeting in a Cancer Support Group for terminally ill patients, the two become friends and discover that they share a love that will sweep them and the viewer off their feet. It is fascinating to watch them help each other through their treatments and pain, but also sad to see them hiding the pain behind half-hearted jokes and sarcasm. The Fault in Our Stars is based on the bestselling novel by John Green. It gives you a look into the funny, thrilling, and disastrous nature of being terminally ill and in love.


The Fault in Our Stars is a heartbreaker for sure, but it is also a romantic and sweet film full of sudden humor and warmth. Together, they navigate the obstacles and perfectly conveys what it is like to be young and in love for the first time. The film pulls you in with its mix of strong dialogue, steady direction, and powerhouse performances by Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. Woodley and Elgort are both very captivating and authentic in their performances, and make the film moving, romantic, and highly entertaining.  The whole time I was in the theater, all I heard was muffled sniffles and aw’s every five minutes. When the credits started to roll it was silent for a few moments and then it was a array of loud sobs and tears. If that doesn’t convey the aspects of an epic love story then I don’t know what does. “You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world…but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.” ― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.
