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.

Trivia

(at around 1 min 36 sec) While Hazel and her mother are at the mall, on the table between them are two plastic giraffes humping. This may be an Easter egg for the nerdfighters, the name for vlogbrothers fans. The two giraffes refer to the fact that the vlogbrothers placed giraffe sex thumbnails on some of their videos even though they have nothing to do with the videos' content. See more »

Goofs

When the flight board is shown their flight to Amsterdam is flight 1740, when the announcement is heard it says flight 1721. 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.

Alternate Versions

Extended version contains 5 additional scenes with 1 alternate scene as follows:
  • When Hazel tells her mother that she is going to Amsterdam, Frannie consents but wants her to see the doctor. Hazel evades the question of whether she's in relationship with Gus. The next morning, both mother and daughter visit Dr. Maria who has reservations about her health and says that she would approve if someone who is familiar with her condition accompanies Hazel for the trip - Hazel suggests her mother for that.
  • When Gus messages her, Hazel simply switches off the phone.
  • The "grenade talk" between Gus and Hazel is not as serious in tone than in the theatrical version.
  • Following the "grenade talk", Gus and Hazel talk about finding the most creative title for their classified ad for the swing. Gus admits of liking her but they just shake hands.
  • John Green's cameo is longer here. The little girl that Hazel meets in the airport asks her about the tubes on her nose. The man (Green) wants to apologize, but Hazel explains the whole thing and even allows her to try it. She thanks Hazel and then leaves with him. Gus' hands are wet so he wipes it with her jacket.
  • When Gus is driven to the hospital in an ambulance with Hazel accompanying her, he asks her to either tell a story or a poem. She recites poem 'The Red Wheelbarrow'.

True to the book
6 June 2014 | by pamma09See all my reviews

I read the book several months ago and have been anxious for the movie. So this grandmother went with her 16 yr old grandson who had also read the book. We are both happy with the adaptation. The story of two teens with cancer who meet in a support group for teens, neither want sympathy and both knowing they will die - want to live life. They exchange books and because of the ending of one and the questions they have - they email the author in Amsterdam. Because he had not used up is 'wish' they end up being able to go there and have the chance to meet the author. Willam Defoe portrays the alcoholic author so well - you do not like him. Gus also tells Hazel something he has been keeping from her. Gus and Hazel have their ups and downs and knowing their time may be limited their love is fresh and true - and presented so well. All the acting is good, the sets, the music -and there is a lot of music but I did not notice most of it - a sign of a good movie score. I volunteer in a hospice facility and it was so good to see the presentation of their cancer as real. Their feelings of what they are going thru as real. I will read the book again and see the movie again - it is worth it.
