"The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings."-Cassius
Julius Caesar (I, ii, 140-141)-William Shakespeare

John Green, a genius of an author, played with the quote above. If Cassius didn't believe that things happen for a reason, John Green surely does.

The story of Hazel Grace and Augustus is beautiful.  Their infinity might be smaller than others, but their love for each other is probably wider than the ocean and deeper than sea.

Shailene Woodley is a natural and I can say the same for the charming Answel Elgort.  In the DIVERGENT Trilogy, they play brother and sister, but here, they are star-crossed lovers. Both roles are very convincing.  I must say that I could give them both standing ovations.

I can see and feel the chemistry between them.  I would have wished that this was a happier story, but no matter how sad this story is, Augustus fear of oblivion will never happen, unless the Second Coming or Armageddon is already imminent. 

Willem Dafoe is perfect as Peter Van Houten(a Dutch-American writer and philosopher), Laura Dern is wonderful as Hazel's mom.  Nat Wolff is great as Isaac and Sam Trammel is awesome as Michael.

I guess everyone did a great job whether their roles were big and small.  I've gotta say congratulations to these guys:

You chose the actors well! Kudos to all of you.

Mr. Josh Boone, even if you made your characters a bit older, you still were very faithful to the story.  I guess I should thank the screenwriters too(see below). Ten power claps and props to you guys!

I already knew the story, but heartstrings were still pulled.  My eyes were so red as I exited the cinema, but at the same time, I also felt light.

Whether you've read the book or not, I am sure a lot of people would be able to relate to this film.

Bring a box of tissues or a couple of large hankies or scarves.

From imdb
  1. 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.
