The huge enthusiasm has been building since the release of its teaser trailer several months ago.
"The Fault In Our Stars” fan were waiting impatiently for the movie release and at the same time, the fear was within: Will the movie do any justice to the book?



(First of all let’s agree on one rule before you go watch it: Tissues; lots of tissues. You have to be fully packaged, if not for your sake then for whoever sits beside you, they may need your supply.)
After the appearance of Shailene Woodley ( Hazel Grace) and Ansel Elgrot ( Gus) in this year’s Divergent, all fans were already familiar with their faces and expecting a good acting due to their promising performance.  (The fact that in Divergent they were siblings adds some awkwardness to imagine them as lovers here.)
And indeed they were even beyond expectations.

The movie opens with Hazel Grace lying on the grass and retrieving her memories (unlike the book). Hazel is a teenage girl diagnosed with terminal stage lung cancer. Dealing with cancer is tragic enough; adding a young age to that element created the mother of all dramas.  She gives us a general idea about her routine boring life; that is until Agustus appears.

The romance builds up a few minutes after the movie starts in a peaceful, lovely manner; you could almost feel the love between the characters.
Woodley along with her partner Elgrot give a performance much deeper and stronger than that of their previous movie. They were capable of performing intense emotional scenes that evoked the viewer’s sensation; it is like the characters were built for them.

Cancer patients are patients with just a few more cells than normal, however they want to be capable of doing everything with no discrimination from other people of the same age group; they want to prove to themselves this point even if it meant to endure some pain. They want to love, hate, laugh and move about just like any other kid with a normal cell count.



The movie takes you on a two-hour journey to see the world through their eyes; what they have to go through most of their period of sickness , the over protective parents  for example and most of all the critical choices they have to take no matter how painful.

Would you trade you eyes for your life if you had retinoblastoma? To lose your sight forever just to end the disease? Would you trade your legs, not to walk again, just to go on breathing? Or would you mind walking around carrying your oxygen tank, your ticket of survival, wherever you go?
Would you even mind having a relationship with a cancer diagnosed patient, knowing that any moment, and without any warning, all what you built will come tumbling down?

They live through this in real life; the movie doesn’t fail to remind us that someone, somewhere in this vast universe, has a far much bigger problem then what to dress to wear for dinner.
Cancer patients are the stars with one fault: their genetic mutation, never-the-less that doesn’t stop them from shining “they are still stars”.




The script is so wonderfully written, least to be said since it is written by the book’s author John Green where several phrases said would linger there in your brain, refusing to go. (Such as describing terminal cancer patients as a grenade, unknown when it would blow up and injure not only itself but all those around it).

This movie was worth watching and lucky enough, it doesn’t disappoint the book fans that have been impatiently waiting for it.
