The Fault in Our Stars (2014) Poster

Laura Dern: Frannie



  • Frannie : [Hazel Grace is wearing a shirt printed with René Magritte's "The Treachery of Images", a painting of a pipe with the words "this is not a pipe" in French]  I really don't get that shirt.

    Hazel Grace Lancaster : Van Houten will get it. Trust me. There are like fifty Magritte references in "Imperial Affliction."

    Frannie : "This is not a pipe."

    Hazel Grace Lancaster : Exactly.

    Frannie : But it is a pipe.

    Hazel Grace Lancaster : No, it's not. It's a drawing of a pipe. See?

    [she doesn't] 

    Hazel Grace Lancaster : All representations of a thing are inherently abstract. A drawing of a thing is not the thing itself. Not is a t-shirt of a drawing of a thing the thing itself.
