Waiting on Wednesday: The Fault in Our Stars
The second of two films being released this year starring Shailene Woodley (who is also starring in the film adaptation of Veronica Roth's bestselling novel Divergent) and Ansel Elgort (who plays Woodley's brother in the Divergent film), The Fault in Our Stars is set to hit theaters on June 6. It also stars Willem Defoe, Laura Dern, and Sam Trammel.
IMDB.com describes the film (and the novel) like this:
Hazel and Gus are two teenagers 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 in a cancer support group.
For those of you who haven't yet read The Fault in Our Stars, I strongly suggest you take the time to read the book before heading out to see the film. John Green is a fantastic writer (if a little kooky on Tumblr), and this novel will tug at your heart strings in the best way.
If it is half as wonderful as the book, the film adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you believe that love exists. No matter what.
