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 at a cancer support group.
Writers:Scott Neustadter (screenplay), Michael H. Weber
I feel like a late bloomer here having just watched it for the first time a few days ago. I kept wanting to watch with the husband, but I gave up on that and decided to watch it by myself so I could see what the fuss was about it. I will admit that when I read the book I didn't cry like most people said they did. For that reason alone I thought my feelings towards the movie would be about the same as the book.
I was wrong.
There were a few points in the movie that I caught myself wiping tears from my eyes. The one that comes to mind first is Hazel sitting in front of the swing set.
The one things I noticed (at least I think) is Isaac didn't seem to be in the movie all that much. I could have sworn he was in the book a lot more then that. I adored Isaac's character so I was sad he didn't get a bigger part.
I think they did a great job with the casting. I adore Shailene as Hazel, and after I watched this I had to watch Divergent.
If you haven't watched this and are a late bloomer like me I would recommend it.
