Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by John Green, The Fault in Our Stars follows young cancer patients Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus "Gus" Waters (Ansel Elgort) from their initial meeting at a support group to a romantic, all-expenses-paid trip (referred to sarcastically by Hazel as a "cancer perk") to Amsterdam, where they hope to meet their favorite author, Peter Van Houten (Willem Dafoe). While neither the trip, their prognoses, nor their visit with Van Houten go exactly as they had imagined, what Hazel's oncologist refers to as a cancer "journey" ends up symbolizing the emotional ups and downs of both adolescence and living with a serious illness. The Fault in Our Stars flirts at times with being just a bit too precious, particularly when it comes to Augustus. While there is nothing wrong with Elgort's performance (and much of his dialogue is taken verbatim from the source material), the character's grandiose manner and penchant for metaphors aren't entirely believable for an 18-year-old boy. The same could be said of Hazel's stoic acceptance of the thyroid cancer that will, in all likelihood, be the cause of her death. However, as their relationship grows, it becomes increasingly apparent that Gus' optimism and Hazel's cynicism are different manifestations of the same protective armor. Woodley's portrayal of Hazel brings with it an understated poignancy. She is not an impossibly beautiful saint suffering in glamorous agony; she is a smart young woman who has come to terms with her own mortality as best as she can manage. One of the most unique elements of The Fault in Our Stars is that it occurs in a place of acceptance rather than acute grief. Augustus and Hazel speak readily about their eulogies and their philosophies regarding the existence of an afterlife, but they do so with a palpable layer of detachment that both actors should be proud of harnessing so well. For all of the film's unapologetically sweeping gestures and metaphors, its strength comes from its subtlety and attention to detail. The side effects of cancer are in every shot, whether in the form of an oxygen tank, breathing apparatus, prosthetic limb, chemotherapy bag, or the unrelenting anxiety on the faces of Hazel and Gus' respective families. Hazel's parents, played expertly by Laura Dern and Sam Trammell, are on their own search for meaning when it comes to the tragedy of having a terminally ill child. Since the parents and children don't talk about this topic together, it's clear that Hazel's attendance in a cancer-support group and her doctor's references to the disease as a "journey" are necessary for the adults to stay sane and positive. Similarly, it is the pithiness of Hazel's often harsh perception of reality that gives the film its weight and offers the perfect counterpoint to Gus' verbosity. While the self-admitted "soliloquies" of Augustus Waters bring the wit, Hazel's heartfelt yet pragmatic conclusions bare the movie's soul. Breathing difficulties and the process of dying itself, according to Hazel, simply "suck." This unflinchingly realistic perspective is as constant a presence in the film as the cancer itself, giving the story a tone more bittersweet than saccharine -- and it's this element, surprisingly enough, that makes the tears flow and forces the audience to come to their own conclusions about what constitutes a life lived to its fullest.

When a well-loved book is adapted as a movie I always wonder if the film can live up to my expectations. In this case, it's John Green's fabulous book, The Fault in Our Stars. I didn't get to the theatres to see it, so I happily sat down with the newly released The Fault in Our Stars Little Infinites Blu-ray. Director Josh Boone's vision of the book was excellent! For those of you unaware of either book or movie (and how can that be!) The Fault in Our stars is the love story of Hazel and Augustus - who meet at a teen cancer group. Actors Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort both did an amazing job bringing these characters to the screen. Supporting actors Laura Dern and Sam Trammel also embodied the mental images I had created for Hazel's parents. Woodley and Elgort nail the sarcastic dialogue, the poignant scenes and the 'get the tissue box moments' (seriously you're going to want to have that handy) and made me fall in love all over again with this story. There are so many great scenes and lines from the book that stuck in my head as I was reading and I wondered if they would appear in the movie. They did - including my personal favourite - "Some infinities are bigger than other infinities." This Blu-ray edition is actually called the Little Infinities Extended Edition (and comes with a limited edition little infinities bracelet) The Fault in Our Stars tackles a serious topic with humour, grace, wit and so much emotion. It's impossible not to love the story. Although I loved getting lost in watching the movie, I was also eager to see the additional features included - an extended version, deleted scenes (including a cameo cut from John Green), features on the cast, the process of taking a book to a movie and many more. Is it a movie I would watch again? Absolutely. Definitely recommended to movie and book lovers - one of the best book to film adaptions I've seen.

The Fault in Our Stars starts out okay, but once you get deeper into the movie you feel the emotion between Gus and Hazel! Its adorable, its heartbreaking and the best thing about it is it followed the storyline of the book!!! :))))))))))

Honest opinion about the book “The Fault In Our Stars”, it was a really great book, it was wonderful, it was beautiful, it was just truly amazing. TFIOS has you feeling multiple different ways, at one point you're happy and laughing and at another your emotional and crying, like an Emotional Roller Coaster? Once I started reading I couldn’t stop, honestly, I'm one of those people to not read a lot. I find reading useless like it’s a waste of time, but John Green changed my mind completely about books. I recommend reading this book because it makes you appreciate life more and it proves that love, at first sight, does exist and that we all should be “LIVING OUR BEST LIFE TODAY!”

It took me a long time to finally read John Green's bestselling novel, The Fault in Our Stars. My life was intimately touched by cancer a couple years ago, so I needed time to become emotionally ready to read the tragic tale. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the book was not the tear-jerking cancer story I feared it would be. Yes, it is about kid's with cancer, but the book is more a bittersweet once in a lifetime kind of love story. The genuine characters, sharp writing, and deeper questions of mortality and legacy made for a very strong novel. Fortunately the film adaptation of the novel remains true to the book and manages to capture much of the magic from the text. The film follows Hazel (Shailene Woodley), a teenager who is fighting a terminal case of cancer. She is on an experimental medication that keeps her disease at bay, but she will eventually succumb to her illness. An only child, Hazel spends her days reading, attending college classes, or watching T.V. with her parents. At the insistence of her mother, Hazel finds herself at a weekly support group for critically ill teens. It is at these meetings that Hazel meets Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort), a lanky, attractive, former high school basketball star who lost a leg to cancer. The two form an immediate connection, and we watch as their young love blossoms. They bond over Hazel's favorite book, An Imperial Affliction, and obsess about the book's ending, or lack thereof. Their curiosity leads them to contact the book's author, Peter Van Houten (Willem Defoe), and even travel to Amsterdam to visit with him. A plot twist near the end brings their entire relationship into question and forces the two to face realities neither of them are prepared for. The two leading actors expertly portray the humor, angst, and wonder of two young people falling in love. The stellar performances by each member of the cast helps to elevate what could easily be a cheesy Lifetime Channel romance story into something more. Laura Dern as Hazel's overprotective mother, does a particularly fantastic job as a woman facing the possibility of losing her only daughter. Cancer is a difficult subject to talk about and can easily become morbid and cliche. This film approaches the subject with a respectful lightness and humor, making the tragic elements easier to stomach. There are a couple minor changes from the book, but none of them have a negative effect on the story. Fans of the novel will be pleased that this adaptation maintains the romance, hope, sadness and wit of Green's story.

Book title and author: The Fault In Our Stars By: John Green Title of review: sad and inspiring Number of stars (1 to 5): 4 This book is inspiring because it’s about a girl named Hazel Grace Lancaster who has thyroid cancer and is sent to support group where she meets and falls in love with Augustus Waters. Hazel Lancaster is a seventeen year old girl that is suffering from thyroid cancer, because of her cancer she uses a portable tank of oxygen to help her breath properly. In one of the meeting at support group she laid her eyes on a teenage boy whose name is Augustus waters. He’s there to support his friend named Isaac who has cancer in his eyes and has only one eye and is getting the other one removed. After the support group meeting Hazel and Augustus flirt for a while then he invites her to see a movie she thinks he is great until he pulls out a cigarette she was shocked.at the stupidity. I like this book because its about these teenagers that have cancer and are falling for each other and they help each other out they cry they laugh together it inspired me a lot because it made me feel that I should live life to the fullest because there might not be a tomorrow. This book is narrated by Hazel, age 16 who has thyroid cancer in her lungs. She makes two friends at support group Isaac, who is going blind and Augustus, who has a fake leg from cancer. At first Hazel tries to avoid Augustus because she feels like she is a grenade and she is going to blow up one day. Letting someone love her makes her think that violence is an act against him. She thinks that Augustus is a person that won’t hurt her so they fall in love .

You never know what is going to happen. Conclusion, in conclusion Hazel and Agustus adore each other. I learned a lot about cancer in this book. This book is a good inspiration to have you to imagine while you are reading it.
