Based on the successful John Green novel, this sensitive, sweeping film stars an excellent Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) as Hazel, a sixteen-year old with terminal thyroid cancer that has metastasized to her lungs. Forced to attend a support group by her parents, she meets Augustus (Ansel Elgort) who’s in remission from osteosarcoma, and is immediately attracted to him. Growing closer, they share their experiences and enjoy a burgeoning friendship and even first love, all while struggling to ward off their fears of the future.
A hugely affecting, fresh and heartfelt film anchored by Woodley’s superb performance
