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 reading the eulogy, Hazel states there are more numbers between 0 and 2 than between 0 and 1 (and more between 0 and 1000 than 0 and 1), thus there are a different number of infinities. There are actually exactly the same amount of numbers between 0 and 1 and 0 and 2 (their infinities are equal). In fact there are the same amount of numbers between 0 and 1 and between negative infinity and positive infinity.

It is true that there are different levels of infinities, i.e, some infinities ARE bigger than others, however Hazels logic does not prove this. Cantor's diagonal argument on Wikipedia explains this. 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.

A Beautiful Love Story: Going to love it for the longest of the infinity
21 July 2014 | by AniConradSee all my reviews

'Some infinities are bigger than other infinities' says my favorite quote from the movie (and the book) and its true because I am going to love this movie for the longest of the infinity. I am a huge fan of the book and one thing which really makes the movie stand out is an amazing performance by Shailene Woodley. She is outstanding in every scene she is and I have to say I am kind of in love with Hazel. Even though its a love story of a girl who has terminal cancer I wouldn't say that the film is tragic rather the film is about living your life to the fullest in your 'little infinity' If you have already read the book, the film is true to the book and the great acting, directing and music adds another dimension to the story. The Fault In Our Stars is definitely one of the best romantic movies ever. When you see this movie you are going to laugh and you are going to cry and when the end credit roles I can guarantee most of you are going to be completely in love with this love story.
