The Fault In Our Stars

Director: Josh Boone

Starring: Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Laura Dern

Based on John Green’s novel “The Fault in our Stars is a teenage tear jerker flick involving Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) a feisty teenager recovering from the aftermath of childhood cancer and now carries an oxygen tank with her everywhere. In a recovery group she meets a charming upbeat, young man Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort ) who has lost one leg to cancer. Touchingly they fall in love. A heartfelt story which never really feels insincere. Elgort’s character is less credible however but good supporting performance from Laura Dern as Hazel’s mother, whose silent suffering at her daughter’s fragile mortality, makes this a watchable movie. Take your box of tissues.
