The Fault In Our Stars is, above all else, a love story. When terminally ill sixteen-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster (The Spectacular Now’s Shailene Woodley) meets the charming and confident Augustus Waters (Divergent’s Ansel Elgort) at a cancer support group, they immediately connect over their matching wit and unconventional interests. As their friendship erupts into full-fledged romance, what follows is a beautiful lesson on living in the moment. Using John Green’s stunning screenplay, adapted from his own New York Times bestselling novel, Woodley and Elgort give compelling performances, rich with organic chemistry, guiding us through an emotional story of two teens living and loving in the face of their impending fate. Hazel begins her story by saying that she believes “we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories,” and The Fault In Our Stars chooses the most irresistible and poignant approach possible.
