Josh Boone directs this drama starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as a pair of young cancer patients who fall in love. Based on the novel by John Green, the film tracks the relationship that grows between Hazel Grace Lancaster (Woodley) and Gus Waters (Elgort) following their meeting at a cancer support group for youngsters. Though Hazel, whose cancer is terminal and requires the constant use of an oxygen tank, is understandably pessimistic about her future and the possibility of happiness, Gus's infectious personality and optimistic outlook gradually bring her hope and humanity to the fore. The supporting cast includes Willem Dafoe, Nat Wolff and Laura Dern.

Ansel Elgort, Mike Birbiglia

The Fault In Our Stars is one of my favourite books, so while I was anticipating the movie I was also dreading it. What if they messed it up, or even changed the ending like with My Sister's Keeper? What if the cast was as interesting as cardboard? I shouldn't have worried.

The script is so amazing it's like John Green wrote it himself; it's the best adaptation I could hope for, and strikes the perfect balance between humour and emotion. The cast isn't a set of people acting - Augustus Waters IS Augustus Waters, Hazel Grace IS Hazel Grace. They couldn't have picked better people.

Throughout the movie I was laughing, (almost) crying and always entertained. I can't really call it perfect, because it's so much more than that - it's a film that will always stay with me and I can't wait to watch it again, and if you love the book you'll love this just as much.

Just as with any other obsessive reader, when books are turned into films I'm always worried that the film won't give the book the justice it deserves. But let me tell you, The Fault In Our Stars absolutely, 100% did. I loved the film just as much as I loved the book, if not more.

Even though the story, two teenagers meeting in a cancer support group, sounds rather sad, The Fault In Our Stars isn't just your average cancer story. The entire film is full of cute and funny moments that lighten the mood and definitely make the movie worth watching.

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort (A.K.A Hazel and Gus) also play the characters brilliantly. My standards are usually extremely high when it comes to casting choices for books that I've read but after watching the film, I can't imagine Hazel and Gus being played by anyone else.

As I mentioned earlier, I get obsessed with books so obviously when the movie came out, I had to see it too. I went to see it as soon as I could on the day it came out and I don't think I'll ever fully recover (in a good way).

You will cry with tears of joy and sadness throughout the entirety of this film but it is so totally worth it.
(Tip for girls: wear waterproof mascara. I certainly wish I had.)

Even if The Fault In Our Stars isn't what you would usually look for in a film or a book, it's beautiful storyline; amazing acting and ability of making you want to watch it on a constant loop, would definitely make me recommend it to absolutely anyone.

(If only the both the film and book were longer.)

I went to see this the day it came out and had my tickets booked months in advance and I was not disappointed. The actors were all amazing, and I doubted the casting at first but now I cannot imagine another Gus and Hazel. The film makes you laugh and I cried all the way back from the cinema it was so moving. I got some strange looks though.

I loved the book and I thought the film was a perfect adaptation. Usually I never like films as much as I do the book versions, but that wasn't the case with this one. I cried and I laughed. It was a beautiful story that translated well into a movie.

Read the book, quite liked that. Seen the movie, loved that! Please give Shailene Woodley an oscar nomination! Ansel Elgort wasn`t half bad either.

The Fault in Our Stars is a 2014 American romantic comedy-drama film directed by Josh Boone, based on the novel of the same name by John Green according to a definition I got online. Well considering the subject matter, this film is more of a romantic drama than a romantic comedy although the film does contain some humour.

Shailene Woodley plays Hazel Grace Lancaster, a sixteen-year-old cancer patient who is forced by her parents to attend a support group, where she subsequently meets and falls in love with Augustus Waters, played by Ansel Elgort. The movie isn't too long at 126 million and is a great film. If you are thinking this films plot is similar to 2002's A Walk To Remember or 2011's Restless then you would be wrong because those films were terrible.

The film of course has the odd twist the biggest being the appearance of Willem Defoe, a pleasant surprise since I had no idea he was in this film. I would comment on how good the acting was except I don't go to see a film for the acting, I go for the story and this film has an excellent story. Its just a bonus the acting is good.

I would describe this films plot more but the brief synopsis given is all you'll need. This is definitely a film worth seeing.

Format: DVD
Two teens with cancer meet and fall in love. A film that by nature will sell crates of Puffs. Our couple meets at a support group which they have both long out grown. They want one last chance to do something like normal teens. The film takes on that "Lifetime" air and seems more realistic than most films in this genre except for that Van Houten thing.

The film is loaded with metaphors and messages. Gus' cigarette being the most powerful. It is "Love Story" for a new generation. The film will be more of a "people's choice" than a critic's choice.

Yes, it is in the realm of a romance or "chick flic" Light comedy.

Parental Guide: 1 F-bomb. Implied sex. No nudity.
