What can be said about The Fault in Our Stars that really hasn't been said before? This film is tremendous, and for a love story, it's one that even guys can get into as it goes beyond just the cheesy love fest most would expect. After all, that is exactly what makes this film a tremendous one - emotion. The Fault in Our Stars is a fantastic movie built on emotion and raw human feeling that anchors a film that is also supported by a fantastic story and great acting.
The plot going in forecasts an expected gut wrenching and eventual waterworks for those who cry during these films, but what Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort bring forth as "Hazel" and "Gus" truly makes it that much more epic. Especially, Woodley, who was tremendous.
There really isn't much more you can say that you haven't read over at IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes. This film is fantastic, and very much worth the watch. Prepare to be challenged on the way you look at life, and yes, for the those who are emotionally fragile, keep tissues nearby.
