Sorry I did this a day late. I’ve been busy LOVING being in Ontario. Now, here it is!!!!! The Fault In Our Stars Review.
Disclaimer: SilverCity Movie Theatre and the makers of TFIOS did not pay trillions and trillions of money (although it would be nice ;)) for this review.
This is a description: (in my own words)
17 year old Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley) has cancer. She has an oxygen machine which helps her breathe as her lungs will fill up with fluid. She reluctantly goes to a couple support group for kids with cancer where she meets a honestly good looking guy named Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort). As they get to know each other, both develop a relationship. Augustus is an amputee and later on getting cancer and having another leg amputated (I think because I couldn’t see but it looked a lot like it) and Hazel has stage 4 cancer. Together they are unstoppable. They have a picnic, go to Amsterdam to see the writer of their favourite book “An Imperial Infliction” to find answers, only to get insulted and get no answers because he was heavily wasted. Augustus also hosts a pre-funeral so he could attend it in person.
My favourite parts were when Augustus and Hazel were taking off and Augustus was so amazed because he’s never been on a plane. Also when they first met and he put a cigarette in his mouth and Hazel was disgusted. He explains that you put the thing that does the killing between your teeth but don’t give it the power to do the killing. That was a good metaphor as Augustus said.
I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes these kinds of movies (I think it’s a Rom-Com, but I have no clue). I’m thinking of reading the book too.
If you see the movie, hope you felt happy and sad and everything in between as I did. BYEEEEEEE
