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

In the book, Gus says that he was originally interested in Hazel because she looked like his ex-girlfriend, who died from a brain tumor. He explains that his ex was very mean to him (called him "stumpy," etc.) because she didn't know what she was saying (due to the tumor). In the movie, his ex is not mentioned. See more »

Goofs

When Hazel denounces Gus's tragic flaw, she pronounces the Greek word "hamartia" (ha-mar-tia) "ha-mar-sha." 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'.

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.
