The Fault in Our Stars is a 2014 film based on a book by the same name which i watched online. The full movie was directed by Josh Boone, and stars Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace Lancaster and Ansel Elgort as Augustus Waters. The story follows a girl named Hazel Grace a cancer patient who lives with her mum and dad. One day when Hazel Attends a cancer support group she meets and befriends a boy named Augustus Waters. The story I found to be quite intriguing and well done, but throughout the film there were some sequences which in my opinion didn’t make too much sense. The acting I personally found to be the strongest aspect of the movie, especially Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, I felt that they both gave a very strong and emotional performance. The characters were fine for the most part, but I did find Shailene Woodley’s character Hazel to be quite annoying and a lot of the time kind of a kill joy.
The music for the film I personally didn’t mind and that’s i free download Fault in Our Stars, but there were some songs that did feel a Little overbearing. The film also had some strong atmosphere, especially one scene involving Willem Dafoe’s character Peter Van Houten talking to Hazel and Augustus. The film especially toward the end was also a little emotional, but I personally didn’t cry. Now I wouldn’t say that I was bored at any point during the film, but I wouldn’t say that I’d watch it again any time soon. Over all I give it a 5/10 Steady, but not my type of movie.
One of the two best romance movies I have ever seen (the other being Silver linings playbook which is my favorite romance movie ever) and one o f my favorite movies that I have ever seen. I loved the book and I loved the movie even more. The writing, plot, story, and screenplay were fantastic. Shaileen Woodley and Ansel Elgort's performances in the film as Hazel and Augustus were spectacular. The Fault in Our Stars is gorgeous, funny and sad at the same time and it shows true love can be found no matter what. Loved it so much.

Sympathetic turns by future stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort make this "teenage cancer romance" film rise above the likes of other teen aimed fare in its genre. The characters are well etched, and the dialogues are good- which is expected since it is an adaptation of a best-selling book by the same name. The author's complete participation in the production phase is one reason why the fault in our stars is not like other young adult book-based films- it is faithful to the source.
User 3 Review:
somewhat half-good story with some sapience into cancer. the film can be pretentious, punctuating a grave issue with unbelievable coincidences and explicitly convenient characters (like dafoe's). elgort's brash performance also teeters precariously. but 'the fault in our stars' is a sufficient symposium on death. with easy tact, it has a penchant for honest portraits of those making the most of seemingly desultory lives.
