Storyline Heading
Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them - and us -on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Romantic - This romance based on the best selling young adult novel is ultimately a tearjerker, but there's actually quite a bit of humor as well. Fans of star Shailene Woodley will have plenty to savor here, with known older stars such as Laura Dern and Willem Dafoe having supporting roles. Women, especially young ones, are the target audience. There is some language and teen sensuality that will be of concern to parents, and the dark subject matter of cancer can also be an issue.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The acting is top-notch, the characters are three-dimensional, and the dialogue is sharp and witty.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'The Fault in Our Stars' feels emotionally inert, despite its many moments that are meant to put a lump in our throats.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good The Fault in Our Stars does, however, grant the audience's wish for a literate, exuberant and wise teen romance.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average But the way "The Fault in Our Stars" throws adorable dying teens all over the place strikes me as calculated.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 79 moviegoers:
These are FANTASTIC REVIEWS! It's obvious, from the many reviews, that "The Fault in Our Stars" is a teen female movie and they LOVED IT! Almost 80% gave it the highest review possible and virtually no one disliked it. All the other age/gender groups also rated it very high, although there weren't many reviews in those other groups. You certainly can't go wrong selecting to see "The Fault in Our Stars."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) is sixteen years old. She alternately loves and tolerates her sometimes over-doting parents. Hazel has developed a crush on a young man, Gus Waters (Ansel Elgort), who seems equally smitten with her. As they grow closer, Hazel and Gus share their fears that accompany their health issues, as well as their love of books, including Hazel's touchstone, An Imperial Affliction. She has tried many times to get in touch with the book's reclusive author Peter Van Houten (Willem Dafoe), to no avail. When Gus manages to reach Van Houten through the author's assistant, it results, astonishingly, in an invitation to meet the writer in Amsterdam. Gus is determined to take Hazel on a journey that will answer every question she has ever had about the book that has meant so much to her.

But the answers she is looking for do not come from Peter Van Houten. They come from living a great adventure that Hazel shares with someone she is not afraid to love - who has given them both what she calls a "little infinity -a forever within the numbered days."
