Long Story Short:
Hazel and Gus, two teenagers who shouldn’t have a worry in their life, share the same sharp sense of humor and instantly feel a connection when they meet for the first time. But unfortunately they share something else; they are both trying to survive a fatal illness.
The Fault in our Stars is a beautiful (but also sad) movie based on a young adult novel of the same name, but it is actually for everyone who can remember falling in love so hard that nothing else mattered.
The two leads Shailene Woodley (The Secfret Life of The American Teenager, 2008- 2013) and Ansel Elgortare (Carrie, 2013) are refreshing and delightful and can compete with any other actor in Hollywood right now. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie since I expected something completely cheesy and immature but it was so much more. This is why people love dramas. It brings you sadness, joy, laughter, hope, tears and butterflies. It is a beautifully tragic rollercoaster and raises the question: If these two can keep smiling and appreciate life, why can’t we?
If you cry easily , get some tissues ready. And if you love dramas, you are in for a real treat.
oh boy. a purposeful tearjerker. 🙂
Sure, it’s sweet, but honestly, it feels like it’s so cloying that, after awhile, I just wanted to leave and punch something. Good review.
Hahaha, then this was clearly not for you. What drama that can is comparable to this movie do you prefer?
Lets just wash the face and say that it is water and not tears 😀
Love the usage “a beautifully tragic rollercoaster” 🙂
Yes, let’s do that! I mean after all it rained from the ceiling… LoL Thank you, my dear. I guess that should be my tagline then?
I guess you can keep the original without complicating it further 😀
