So this is going to be a quick review of the movie The Fault In Our Stars. To start with, I have read the book this movie is based off of, so I knew what was going to happen in the end. Yet, I still put myself through that torture. The movie was extremely accurate to the book. The author, John Green, even makes a cute and short cameo in the movie. I don’t want to leave any spoilers, though the Internet is riddled with them, but the movie was both wonderful and heartbreaking.
I saw on a nerdfighter page that some people would stop the movie after Augustus reads the note from Hazel on his bedside table in Amsterdam. That you could stop the story and just go on to believe they lived happily ever after and nothing bad ever happens. I wish I could do that, but I know that’s not how the story ends. The struggle and heartbreak is so realistic, admirable, and moving. I loved this movie, and would highly suggest watching it if you’re in the mood for a sad but truthful movie. However, I warn you all that you will probably spend the rest of the day contemplating the inevitability of oblivion (like I am right now). Not exactly the most uplifting thing, but sometimes we just need a dose of hard reality.
