The Fault in Our Stars | Palace Cinemas around Australia

I watched the trailer to the film, The Fault in Our Stars and it brought tears to my eyes in that short footage. I knew it was a film I had to watch. Two young adults who appear to be very sick trying to live life the best they can with the bodies they have been given with. In my younger days, I use to be hooked reading young adult fiction as there was always a character I wanted to be like. I wanted to be in their story. When libraries were the place to go to those days, I use to borrow volumes of them and finished reading them all within days. This one though, I think I’m happy to sit on the sideline and observe. I have grown up with people who have had chronic illnesses - some made it through, and some unfortunately did not, but who will forever remain in my heart and memories.

Fault in Our Stars is based on John Green's best-selling young adult novel and stars Divergent's Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. Teen cancer patient Hazel Grace Lancaster (Woodley) reluctantly attends a support group for the disease, where she meets handsome cancer survivor Augustus Waters (Elgort), who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.

I can’t wait to see it. I’ll update the post with my review of the film.
