Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.
Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
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.

In the egg throwing scene, a street sign shows the street they are on as being Eaton Road. This being possibly deliberate by the filmmakers to reference the Divergent Series in which Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort also star which features a character named Tobias Eaton, or just a happy coincidence.

Arriving on the departure airport, the departures timetable is briefly shown. The flight numbers and destinations, including gate numbers, are all from flights which depart from Luxembourg Airport in Luxembourg. Most flight numbers and destinations are from Luxair, except for Amsterdam and Zurich. However, the 9723 Munich flight hasn't been flown via Saarbrucken since a couple of years, which means the shot is already a couple of years old. See more »
Your turn, Gus.
Yeah, sure. I'm, uh, I'm Augustus Waters. I'm 18 years old. I had a touch of osteosarcoma about a year and a half ago. And I lost this baby as a result.

And now I'm part cyborg, which is awesome. But really I'm just here at Isaac's request.
And how are you feeling, Gus?
I'm grand! Yeah. I'm on a rollercoaster that only goes up, my friend.

Was this shot on film? Cause there's a lot of chemistry involved!
This movie, simply put, is worth each and every one of its 125 minutes. Including the closing credits, that you need to dry your eyes and think about what you just saw. It's the inspiring story of two young people who are no different then all of us, as they both are in the process of dieing. Though Hazel Grace and Augustus are more aware of this fact of life; because their eternity" has an expiration date, set by Hazels terminal illness: Cancer.
As the viewer is put on an emotional roller-coaster, alongside the feelings and attitudes towards life and love the two teens share, this movie will be a key to many locked doors in the recepients minds. And through these doors we are lead by an ensemble of actors who are amazingly sensitive in their portrayal of personalities and emotions.
The writing and directing is so brilliantly executed, that you have sympathy with every character this movie so caringly brings to (short) life. Even when they oppose another you feel unable to take sides. Because you find yourself sharing both. And when the credits role - like the tears on your cheek - you realize, that these opposing views are one and the same after all: Life.
