During an exacerbation of her condition, Hazel has a drain put in for her pulmonary oedema. This is incorrect as pulmonary oedema is not managed by the insertion of chest drains, but rather by supportive measures (chest drains are, however, used in cases of pleural effusion). See more »
I went into this movie not having read the book and not knowing anything more than the overall plot. I am a sucker for a good love story, especially love that I can relate to. The pain and emotions felt by the characters felt so real, as if I was feeling the same emotions.
Though this was THE SADDEST movie I have ever seen, it was also one of the most beautiful, as it truly showed how exhilarating and comforting and exciting love is.
I probably cried throughout about half of the movie, along with the rest of the audience. I cried to the point of heaving out loud and needing more than the 2 tissues I came in with. Again, the actors really expressed the emotions of the characters well and I felt that.
I am going to see it again for sure.
GO SEE IT IF YOU LOVE EMOTIONAL MOVIES!
