Storyline

Hazel and Augustus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they meet and fall in love at a cancer support group.

Goofs

(at around 89 mins) Hazel and Gus are on an airplane. The first shot is looking out of their window where the clouds are moving by from left to right, meaning that the front of the airplane is to the left of the shot because the clouds would be moving from the front of the airplane (left) toward the rear of the airplane (right). The camera then pans left to find Hazel and Gus sitting facing to the right towards the rear of the airplane. So they are flying backwards. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Hazel Grace Lancaster: I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugarcoat it the way they do in movies and romance novels, where beautiful people learn beautiful lessons, where nothing is too messed up that can't be fixed with an apology and a Peter Gabriel song. I like that version as much as the next girl, believe me. It's just not the truth. This is the truth. Sorry.

User Reviews

 
A tad predictable, but very touching/strong performances from Woodley/Elgort.
23 May 2014 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort both have arrows strongly pointing upwards. Both shine brightly in this movie and suck you in from the get- go. Following up their (sibling) pairing in Divergent, they both flash a wide range of chops here. Woodley is charming and smart, and Elgort majorly surprised me showing off a comical side. Also very smart.

I won't spoil anything, but I did not read the book so I had no/low expectations and was sucked in early on, and definitely was attached to the characters throughout. It's a great story and it tugs on your heart. Loved it.
